Facial Expressions as an Index of Listening Difficulty and Emotional Response
Knowledge about listening difficulty experienced during a task can be used to better understand speech perception processes, to guide amplification outcomes, and can be used by individuals to decide whether to participate in communication. Another factor affecting these decisions is individuals’ emotional response which has not been measured objectively previously. In this study, we describe […]
Assessing the Impact of Sustainability News Clips on Fast-Fashion Brands Purchase Intention
Sustainability has become a growing concern in the fashion industry over the last few decades. The fashion industry is regarded as one of the most polluting industries. This chapter attempts to provide an analysis of the consumer’s perception towards their fast-fashion choices in Australia. The specific objectives are to find the impact of environment/sustainability news […]
Driver’s Emotions Detection with Automotive Systems in Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CAVs)
Abstract: The aim of this work is to evaluate selected systems in order to assess the emotional state of drivers based on facial analysis and vital signs acquired from camera, galvanic skin response (GSR) and photo plethysmography (PPG). Facial analysis and biomedical variables like galvanic skin response, which is related to sympatho-vagal nervous system balance, […]
Neuro-Participatory Urbanism: Sensing Sentiments and Tracking Perceptions With Machine Learning.
Public places are enablers for diverse and desirable encounters within the city, as evident in the growing efforts by governments in their national policy-making and by academia in their research activities that aim to create mixed-use neighbourhoods capable of supporting such socialization. Novel architectural and urban approaches have thus evolved and developed to engage its […]
The Study of Facial Muscle Movements for Non-Invasive Thermal Discomfort Detection via Bio-Sensing Technology. Part I: Development of the Experimental Design and Description of the Collected Data
In the time of climate change, as heat waves become a more regular occurrence, indoor thermal comfort is an important factor in day to day life. Due to such circumstances, many researchers have focused their studies on finding an effective solution that will not only enable thermal comfort, but also increase satisfaction within the indoor […]
Visual Tailoring and Skin Cancer Prevention: Comparing Personalized, Stock, and Non-Ultraviolet Images
Past research has demonstrated that ultraviolet (UV) photos – which reveal skin damage as dark patches – can increase preventive behaviors. Emerging camera technology facilitates personalized UV photos for interventions, yet little is known about how personalized photos compare to other visuals and what cognitive or affective mechanism explains their persuasive impact. To engage this […]
Associations between emotions and psychophysiological states and confirmation bias in question formulation in ongoing simulated investigative interviews of child sexual abuse
Introduction: In forensic settings interviewers are advised to ask as many open-ended questions as possible. However, even experts may have difficulty following this advice potentially negatively impacting an investigation. Here, we sought to investigate how emotions and psychophysiological parameters are associated with question formulation in real time in an ongoing (simulated) child sexual abuse (CSA) interview. […]
Start Making Sense: Identifying Behavioural Indicators When Things Go Wrong During Interaction with Artificial Agents
The findings from this study will allow artificial agents to be trained to understand characteristic human behaviour exhibited during communication, and how to respond to specific non-verbal cues and biometric feedback with appropriately human-like behaviour
Facial Expressions and Self-Reported Emotions When Viewing Nature Images
Many studies have demonstrated that exposure to simulated natural scenes has positive effects on emotions and reduces stress. In the present study, we investigated emotional facial expressions while viewing images of various types of natural environments. Both automated facial expression analysis by iMotions’ AFFDEX 8.1 software (iMotions, Copenhagen, Denmark) and self-reported emotions were analyzed. Attractive […]
Atypical Facial Expressivity in Young Children with Problematic Peer Relationships
Peer problems are frequently associated with difficulties in recognizing and appraising the emotions of others. It has been argued that facial responsiveness to others’ emotions—or motor empathy—is a precursor of emotion processing and affective empathy. Although mimicry impairments have been observed in studies of young people with conduct problems, to our knowledge no study has […]
