Moreover, we found that concordance between genital and subjective sexual arousal, as measured with a continuous measure of sexual arousal and a vaginal photoplethysmograph, significantly improved following mindfulness training (Brotto, Chivers, & Millman, 2013).
All women watched neutral and erotic films while their vaginal pulse amplitude--a reliable measure of genital arousal--was measured by a vaginal photoplethysmograph.
In effect, a single wavelength/single site NIR system is essentially a brain photoplethysmograph, while a multiple wavelength system at a single site can be thought of as a cerebral pulse oximeter (Moyle, 1994).
All of the women watched neutral and erotic films while their vaginal pulse amplitude--a reliable measure of genital arousal--was measured by a vaginal photoplethysmograph.
Finger temperature (1 sample/sec) was assessed using a thermister and Flexcomp software, and finger pulse volume (3 samples/sec) via an LED photoplethysmograph and peak detection software developed in our laboratory.
The device, called a vaginal photoplethysmograph, works indirectly by emitting light into the vagina and measuring the amount of light that's reflected back.
