Psychophysiological Baselines as a Function of Race and Ethnic Origin

Israel Lieblich, Sol Kugelmass, Gershon Ben‐Shakhar

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Basic skin conductance and pulse rate measurements were obtained from groups differing in race and ethnic origin in Israel. The results suggest higher skin conductance in Caucasians than in Negroes, and in Bedouins than in non‐Bedouins. There is some suggestion of an interaction between race and ethnic origin in relation to skin conductance. Both Caucasian and Negroid Bedouin tend to have lower pulse rates than the Jewish sample.
