An Environment for Studying Visual Emotion Perception
Visual emotion perception is the ability of recognizing and identifying emotions through the visual interpretation of a situation or environment. In this paper we propose an innovative environment for supporting this type of studies, aimed at replacing current pencil-and-paper approaches. Besides automatizing the whole process, this environment provides new features that can enrich the study of emotion perception. These new features are especially interesting for the field of Human-Compute Interaction and Affective computing as they quantify the effects of experiencing different emotional dimensions on the individual’s interaction with the computer.
