Abstract

This article discusses impact of human emotions on physiological characteristics and their changes. Many fields require applications that provide information about the emotional state of a human. Today’s research is mainly concerned with increasing the accuracy of the methodology for obtaining this information. Studied subjects were psychologically stimulated to change their neutral calm state to stress. Subjects were measured physiological characteristics and the change of speech also. Blood samples, ECG and EEG form part of the neurophysiological data that were collected during the neutral state and during stress. Voice activity was recorded from reading text that read, patients in both emotional state. Features extraction was focused on the Mel-frequency Cepstral coefficients and their dynamic and accelerated derivations. Change in emotional state from neutral to stress was recognized by using a GMM classifier that has been trained and tested by mentioned speech features. Psychological stimulus was induced using professional psychological methods. The measurement was performed in a special EMC interference protected chamber to prevent undesirable electrical influences from the external environment especially on sensitive EEG measurement.
