How Soundtracks Shape What We See: Analyzing the Influence of Music on Visual Scenes Through Self-Assessment, Eye Tracking, and Pupillometry
This article presents two studies that deepen the theme of how soundtracks shape our interpretation of audiovisuals. Embracing a multivariate perspective, Study 1 (N = 118) demonstrated, through an online between-subjects experiment, that two different music scores (melancholic vs. anxious) deeply affected the interpretations of an unknown movie scene in terms of empathy felt toward […]
Effects of sustained attention and video lecture types on learning performances
Video lectures are one of the primary learning resources embedded in e-learning environments. Many universities prepare video lectures and share them as open course materials with students. In order to make the learning process more efficient and effective, it is very important to design and personalize those learning resources for learners, taking into their needs […]
Psychophysiological responses to takeover requests in conditionally automated driving
In SAE Level 3 automated driving, taking over control from automation raises significant safety concerns because drivers out of the vehicle control loop have difficulty negotiating takeover transitions. Existing studies on takeover transitions have focused on drivers’ behavioral responses to takeover requests (TORs). As a complement, this exploratory study aimed to examine drivers’ psychophysiological responses […]
Exploring the Relationship between Speech and Skin Conductance for Real-Time Arousal Monitoring
Monitoring human emotions through wearable systems has become an important area of research. Electrodermal activity (EDA) has proven to be a good indicator of emotional arousal, and numerous works have focused on using EDA data to predict emotional states. However, to successfully integrate EDA data into real-time wearable emotion recognition systems, several challenges of practical […]
Attraction comes from many sources: Attentional and comparative processes in decoy effects
The attraction effect emerges when adding a seemingly irrelevant option (decoy) to a binary choice shifts preference towards a target option. This suggests that choice behaviour is dynamic, i.e., choice values are developed during deliberation, rather than manifesting some pre-existing preference set. Whereas several models of multi alternative and multiattribute decision making consider dynamic choice […]
Modality-Transferable Emotion Embeddings for Low-Resource Multimodal Emotion Recognition
Despite the recent achievements made in the multi-modal emotion recognition task, two problems still exist and have not been well investigated: 1) the relationship between different emotion categories are not utilized, which leads to sub-optimal performance; and 2) current models fail to cope well with low-resource emotions, especially for unseen emotions. In this paper, we […]
Visual Preference for Biological Motion in Children and Adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder: An Eye-Tracking Study
Participants with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) (n = 121, mean [SD] age: 14.6 [8.0] years) and typically developing (TD) controls (n = 40, 16.4 [13.3] years) were presented with a series of videos representing biological motion on one side of a computer monitor screen and non-biological motion on the other, while their eye movements were recorded. As predicted, participants […]
Emotion assessment using Machine Learning and low-cost wearable devices
The advancement in bioelectrical measurement technologies and the push towards a higher impact of the Brain Computer Interfaces and Affective Computing in the daily life have made non-invasive and low-priced devices available to the large population to record physiological states. The aim of this study is the assessment of the abilities of the MUSE headband, […]
Protocol for a single-centre, parallel-group, randomised, controlled, superiority trial on the effects of time-restricted eating on body weight, behaviour and metabolism in individuals at high risk of type 2 diabetes: the REStricted Eating Time (RESET) study
The aim of this study is to investigate the effects of time-restricted eating (TRE) on change in body weight and describe changes in behaviour and metabolism in individuals at high risk of type 2 diabetes. Methods and analysis The REStricted Eating Time (RESET) study is a randomised controlled parallel-group open-label trial. 100 women and men […]
Detecting Differences Between Concealed and Unconcealed Emotions Using iMotions EMOTIENT
Biometric analysis is everywhere – even in our cell phone security through facial and fingerprint recognition. It has recently become widely useful in forensic settings as well, being used for facial, fingerprint/palmprint, iris, and voice identification1. Using the iMotions Facial Expression Analysis software, I looked at detection differences between concealed and unconcealed emotions when presented […]
