Abstract

Using a 50-inch 3DTV, we experimentally estimated the relationship between TV viewers’ emotional states and selected physiological indices. Our experiments show complex emotional states to be significantly correlated with these physiological indices, which comprise near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS), representing central nervous system activity, and the low frequency/high frequency ratio (LF/HF), representing sympathetic nervous system activity. These are useful indices for evaluating emotional states that include “feeling of involvement.”
