Abstract

I read with great interest the paper by Henderson et al. (2012) on the relationship of skin sympathetic nerve activity (SSNA) and BOLD responses. The generation of the skin conductance response (SCR) via skin sympathetic nerve fibres remains an understudied topic despite the popularity of SCR as an indicator of sympathetic arousal in emotion neuroscience. However, in order to motivate their use of SSNA for fMRI analysis, Henderson et al. (2012) claim that SSNA cannot be retrieved from SCR. This is not supported by the literature.
