Dermal-optic test

Kirk undergoes a dermal-optic test.

The Robbiani dermal-optic test was a medical diagnostic test that revealed a subject's basic emotional structure by analyzing skin and pupil response to visual stimulation at specific color wavelengths. Captain James T. Kirk was given a Robbiani dermal-optic test upon taking command of the USS Enterprise.

In 2269, Doctor Leonard McCoy subjected Kirk to the test to compare with his previous results, as part of a physical to determine the cause of Kirk's erratic emotional state. (TOS: "Turnabout Intruder")
