Abstract

Wireless brain computer interfaces (BCI’s) are promising for new intelligent applications in which emotions are detected by measuring brain activity. Applications, such as serious games and video game therapy, are measuring and using the user’s emotional state in order to determine the intensity level of the game. This experimental study was designed to validate the measurement of emotion regulation with a single dry electrode wireless BCI during an emotion interference computer task by comparing it with the behavioural performance of this task. The behavioural measures showed significant main and interaction effects indicating that emotion regulatory mechanisms are present in the participants. The EEG measure Attention detected by the Myndplay Brainband XL showed a significant interaction indicating that type of training (meditation or laughter) increases or decreases attention during the emotion interference task. Overall, these results point in the direction of single electrode BCI’s being able to detect emotion interference.
