PsPM-SSNA_1-2: Sudomotor Nerve Activity and Skin Conductance Response to 1: Aversive Sounds and 2: Auditory Oddballs

Gerster, Samuel; Namer, Barbara; Elam, Mikael; Bach, Dominik R

This dataset includes skin conductance response (SCR) and sudomotor neurography signals for each of 7 healthy unmedicated participants 4 male, 3 female,23.7+/-4.0 years) in response to 20 broadband white noise sounds (SSNA_1) or 10 oddball tones in a oddball task (SSNA_2). Some participants did not complete SSNA_2 or had several repetitions of SSNA_1 such that there are 9 recordings for SSNA_1 and 5 recordings for SSNA_2. White noise sounds in SSNA_1 were 1 s long with 10 ms on- and offset ramp and presented at ~85 dB. Oddball and standard sounds in SSNA_2 were 50 ms long, with 10 ms on- and offset ramp, and presented at ~75 dB. Sound frequency was 440 Hz or 460 Hz. White noise sounds and oddball tones was separated by a random inter trial interval of at least 30 s. All stimuli for each of the experiments were presented in one block. There is a marker for each sound onset (including standard tones) in the spike recordings. Participants where instructed to press a button when hearing any sound (SSNA_1) or an oddball (SSNA_2). These keystrokes where not recorded.
