Psychological anxiety trend was studied by Galvanic skin responce (GSR) 60 students, 7 of male and 53 of female, in School of Health Sciences Tokushima University, and the results were compared with the data from State Anxiety Inventory (STAI) test and Self-rating Depression Scale (SDS) test. Compared GSR with STAI, initial responses of GSR showed postive relation to state anxiety in STAI test ; while compared GSR with SDS, both of spontaneous and initial responses showed reversed correlation. Although spontaneous and initial responce in GSR were more remarkably augmented in the female students than male students, these trends might not be caused only by sex difference because the test environment was not same in two groups. Based on these data, GSR is considered to represent objective indicator of psychological anxiety. However further basic data accumulations are needed in regard to some factors affecting the data such as sex of examiners or examinees and test environment.
