Abstract

We present the results of a research on the effects of image distor-tions known to induce visual discomfort (namely, the introduction of Gaussian blur on one visual field) on the emotional reactions of 3DTV viewers. Emotional reactions were explored by means of self-reported as well as psychophysiological methods. The re-sults showed that, despite visual discomfort not having an effect on self-reported emotions, the level of electrodermal activity (a physiological correlate of emotional arousal) was clearly affected, suggesting the existence of seemingly complex effects of visual discomfort over viewers' emotional arousal.
