Stress and EEG

Some time ago we carried out an experiment in Starlab to see if we could find stress markers in EEG signals. This research was done within the Interstress European project. The positive results of this experiment were also used as a part of my PhD thesis. I will briefly explain in this post the experiment […]

Machine learning applied to affective computing (or how to teach a machine to feel)

In our last rendezvous on, ‘Affective computing (or how your PC will know how you feel)‘, I introduced different methodologies for emotion detection that configure the state- of- the- art. Methodologies for emotion detection from face expressions and from body gestures were exposed. Also methodologies from physiological signals, including EEG, galvanic skin response, heart rate […]

Malasyan Computational Intelligence

Last week I had the chance of training a student group on Computational Intelligence and Machine Learning for EEG data analysis at the Petronas Technology University in Malaysia. As usual, being in direct contact with the research offspring is a very interesting experience. It looks like EEG monitoring is booming in Asia and I could […]
