    JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-FORT SAM HOUSTON – (March 1, 2022) Stephanie Speaker (right), of West Warwick, R.I., a biomedical engineer from the Naval Undersea Warfare Center, conducts a practice test for the Electrodermal Activity Sensing for Quantitative Detection of Pain on Katie Geary, of Belcamp, Md., a research engineer with Naval Medical Research Unit (NAMRU) San Antonio at the Battlefield Health and Trauma Building 2 located next to the Brooke Army Medical Center while Cmdr. Rachel Werner, of Cocoa Beach, Fla., head of NAMRU San Antonio’s Maxillofacial Injury and Disease Department, observes. Electrodermal activity is fluctuations in the electrical characteristics of the skin, typically controlled by the sweat glands. The study is being conducting to create a machine learning algorithm that will distinguish between pain and anxiety to help dental care providers provide optimal care to their patients. NAMRU San Antonio’s mission is to conduct gap driven combat casualty care, craniofacial, and directed energy research to improve survival, operational readiness, and safety of Department of Defense personnel engaged in routine and expeditionary operations. It is one of the leading research and development laboratories for the U.S. Navy under the DoD and is one of eight subordinate research commands in the global network of laboratories operating under the Naval Medical Research Center in Silver Spring, Md.
