Feelings and emotions are at the core of how the human mind processes and responds to stimuli. Despite this connection, measuring human emotional response to stimuli in a meaningful way has presented a challenge to researchers for centuries. Today’s researchers use affect, a multi-dimensional approach to measuring psychophysiological responses to stimuli, to better understand the nature of human feelings, moods, emotions.
Join us to learn how you can objectively measure emotional responses via physiological measures.
Examples using multiple signals including facial EMG, EDA, temperature, blood pressure, and fNIRS
Quantifying the valence (positive vs. negative) of emotions and the degree of arousal
Accessing real-time data for biofeedback or for applications in online emotional state classification
Combining subjective and objective measures on a single timeline
Learn about a wide array of existing techniques and tools so you can make an informed decision about what measures to use in your study protocol.
Alex Dimov (BIOPAC Systems, Inc.) has been teaching workshops on the topic of physiological data acquisition and analysis for over 15 years. While at UC Santa Barbara he was an instructor for The Advanced Training Institute for Virtual Reality in Social Psychology. He joined BIOPAC as an application specialist and now oversees European Sales for BIOPAC.
In this webinar, we will demonstrate recording of high-quality ECG data as well as preparing data for analysis through UST HRV measurements during acute stress, Valsalva maneuver and paced breathing.
You Will Learn – Physiological basis of HRV – Impact of measurement durations on HRV – Recording good quality ECG & preparing data for analysis – Analysis of short and ultra-short duration HRV – Single-epoch and multi-epoch analysis – Focus areas and event-based analysis – Automation with scripting and workflow
