This paper proposes a methodology for the robust classification of neurophysiological data into four emotional states collected during passive viewing of emotional evocative pictures selected from the International Affective Picture System. The proposed classification model is formed according to the current neuroscience trends, since it adopts the(More)
Recent neuroscience findings demonstrate the fundamental role of emotion in the maintenance of physical and mental health. In the present study, a novel architecture is proposed for the robust discrimination of emotional physiological signals evoked upon viewing pictures selected from the International Affective Picture System (IAPS). Biosignals are(More)
Physical as well as cognitive training interventions improve specific cognitive functions but effects barely generalize on global cognition. Combined physical and cognitive training may overcome this shortcoming as physical training may facilitate the neuroplastic potential which, in turn, may be guided by cognitive training. This study aimed at(More)
The emergence of inexpensive off-the-shelf wireless EEG devices led researchers to explore novel paradigms in the field of Human Computer Interaction. In fact, the compliance of these devices with the IoT principles towards pervasive EEG signaling in smart home environments enables new models of interaction and a different perspective from traditional(More)
Many platforms have emerged as response to the call for technology supporting active and healthy aging. Key requirements for any such e-health systems and any subsequent business exploitation are tailor-made design and proper evaluation. This paper presents the design, implementation, wide deployment, and evaluation of the low cost, physical exercise, and(More)
Technologies of information and communication are incrementally integrated with all facets of healthcare practice and education. Although Electronic Health Records (EHRs) have long been used in healthcare the introduction of open source tools has empowered their further expansion of use. Simultaneously the use of Web 2.0 tools has opened up new ways of(More)
In this paper the feasibility of adopting Graphic Processor Units towards real-time emotion aware computing is investigated for boosting the time consuming computations employed in such applications. The proposed methodology was employed in analysis of encephalographic and electrodermal data gathered when participants passively viewed emotional evocative(More)
Autism is a communication disorder that mandates early and continuous educational interventions on various levels like the everyday social, communication and reasoning skills. Computer-aided education has recently been considered as a likely intervention method for such cases, and therefore different systems have been proposed and developed worldwide. In(More)
Autism is a mental disability that requires early intervention by educating autistic children on the everyday social, communication and reasoning skills. Computer-aided learning has recently been considered as the most successful educational method and various CAL systems have been developed. In this paper we examine the existing CAL systems and platforms(More)
