  • Automatic Recognition of Posed Facial Expression of Emotion in Individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder

    GatedPeer-Reviewed08/10/2018Johnson & Johnson, Janssen Research & Development + 4

    Abstract: Facial expression is impaired in autism spectrum disorder (ASD), but rarely systematically studied. We focus on the ability of individuals with ASD to produce facial expressions of emotions in response to a verbal prompt. We used the Janssen Autism Knowledge Engine (JAKE®), including automated facial expression analysis software (FACET) to measure facial expressions in individuals […]

  • Copycat of dynamic facial expressions: Superior volitional motor control for expressions of disgust

    GatedPeer-Reviewed01/10/2018Differential Psychology and Psychological Assessment, Universität Hamburg + 2

    Abstract: In social situations facial expressions are often strategically employed. Despite the many research on motor control of limb movements, little is known about the control over facial expressions. Using a response-priming task, we investigated motor control over three facial expressions, smiles, disgust and emotionally neutral jaw drops. Prime stimuli consisted of videos of a facial […]

  • Automotive Emotions: An Investigation of Their Natures, Frequencies of Occurrence and Causes


    Abstract: Technological and sociological developments in the automotive sector are shifting the focus of design towards developing a better understanding of driver needs, desires and emotions. Human-centred design methods are being more frequently applied to automotive research, including the use of systems to detect human emotions in real-time. One method for a non-contact measurement of […]

  • How Advertisers Can Keep Mobile Users Engaged and Reduce Video-Ad Blocking


    Abstract: Advertising researchers do not understand fully the impact different advertisement placement and delivery vehicles have on the mobile user’s experience. To better grasp the mobile user’s experience in real time, the authors collected data streams garnered from the brain and body, including visual fixations, heart rate, electroencephalography, skin conductance, and facial affect. The data helped […]

  • Personality traits affect the influences of intensity perception and emotional responses on hedonic rating and preference rank toward basic taste solutions

    GatedPeer-Reviewed31/08/2018Department of Food Science, University of Arkansas

    Abstract: This study aimed at determining, based on independent predictors of taste intensity and emotional response, whether individual personality traits could affect prediction models of overall liking and preference rank toward basic taste solutions. Sixty-seven participants rated taste intensities (TI) of four basic-taste solutions at both low and high concentrations, and of plain water. Emotional responses […]

  • Towards Automated Pain Detection in Children using Facial and Electrodermal Activity

    Open AccessPeer-Reviewed01/08/2018

    Abstract: Accurately determining pain levels in children is difficult, even for trained professionals and parents. Facial activity and electrodermal activity (EDA) provide rich information about pain, and both have been used in automated pain detection. In this paper, we discuss preliminary steps towards fusing models trained on video and EDA features respectively. We demonstrate the […]

  • Subtle behavioural responses during negative emotion reactivity and down-regulation in bipolar disorder: A facial expression and eye-tracking study

    GatedPeer-Reviewed01/08/2018The Copenhagen Affective Disorder Research Center (CADIC), Copenhagen University Hospital + 2

    Abstract: Abnormal processing of emotional information and regulation are core trait-related features of bipolar disorder (BD) but evidence from behavioural studies is conflicting. This study aimed to investigate trait-related abnormalities in emotional reactivity and regulation in BD using novel sensitive behavioural measures including facial expressions and eye movements. Fifteen patients with BD in full or […]

  • Impact of Learner-Centered Affective Dynamics on Metacognitive Judgements and Performance in Advanced Learning Technologies

    GatedPeer-Reviewed01/06/2018North Carolina State University

    Abstract: Affect and metacognition play a central role in learning. We examine the relationships between students’ affective state dynamics, metacognitive judgments, and performance during learning with MetaTutorIVH, an advanced learning technology for human biology education. Student emotions were tracked using facial expression recognition embedded within MetaTutorIVH and transitions between emotions theorized to be important to […]

  • Exploring Preservice Teachers’ Emotional Experiences in an Immersive Virtual Teaching Simulation through Facial Expression Recognition

    GatedPeer-Reviewed18/05/2018University of South Florida College of Education + 2

    This study investigated preservice teachers’ emotional experiences while interacting within a virtual scenario-based teacher-training system called Simulation for Teaching Enhancement of Authentic Classroom behavior Emulator (SimTEACHER). We created three types of interactions (no interaction, unexpected interaction, and expected interaction) within SimTEACHER and examined the influences of the interaction design on preservice teachers’ emotional responses in […]

  • Assessment of human driver safety at Dilemma Zones with automated vehicles through a virtual reality environment


    Abstract: Ensuring the safety of mixed traffic environments, in which human drivers interact with autonomous vehicles, is an impending challenge. A virtual traffic environment provides a risk-free opportunity to let human drivers interact with autonomous vehicles, indicating how variability in traffic environments and human responses compromises safety. Analyzing the section of road preceding an intersection […]
