Previous emotion recognition systems have mainly focused on pattern classification, rather than utilizing sensing technologies or feature extraction methods. This paper introduces a method of physiological sensing and feature extraction for emotion recognition that is based on an oriental medicine approach. The specific points for affective sensing were experimentally determine, in which it was found that skin conductance measurements of the forearm region correlate well with acupuncture spots. Features are then extracted by the same way to interpret pulsation signals in diagnosis. We found that the proposed sensing and feature extraction method benefits the recognition of emotion with a neural network classifier.
