How can we detect emotions with a high level of accuracy?
The heart has been a representation of our emotions since the dawn of humanity, but we all know that when an emotion comes in, it affects all our body. Just think of your palm getting sweaty when you get anxious or stressed!
Moreover, interestingly, not only an emotion determines our peripheral physiological changes but it is also affected by our peripheral changes: our ability to perceive and interact with our surroundings is surprisingly influenced by the information that our internal organs send to the brain.
As Psychologist William James wrote in 1893, “emotion dissociated from all bodily feeling is inconceivable”.
Through our projects, we are innovating in multiple fields simultaneously and finding out about physiological and neurophysiological correlates of emotions.
Our multidisciplinary team combines novel technology, neuroscience and cutting-edge artificial intelligence models with the aim of efficiently collecting multimodal biosignals in ecological environment and reaching the realtime correct detection of emotional changes.s.
