Abstract

Various factors are believed to cause blinking. One of these factors is attention. However, the relationship between blinking and attention has not yet been elucidated. In this study, we focus on electrodermal activity (EDA) to demonstrate this relationship. EDA is an electrical phenomenon involving the glandular releasing of sweat that is caused by mental excitement or strain. We employ EDA to quantify attention as a means to elucidate the blinking-attention relationship. We conduct an experiment based on EDA and present the results to verify this relationship.
