This study points out the stability of a quotient expressing the recovery of basal skin resistance (BSR) level. Changes noted in BSR during stress are consistent with the behavior of tranquilized patients and have significance for drug therapy. Information of this type may be quite useful for interpretation and objectivity in a wide range of clinical researches.
