Heart rate is a well-established indicator of emotional arousal and can serve to detect emotional events. One difficulty, however, is in separating emotional heart rate increases from those increases due to physical activity. On-line analysis of both heart rate and physical activity (recorded with motion detectors) with a portable minicomputer may be able to solve this problem. We have developed a special algorithm that compares the values for heart rate and activity of a particular minute with… CONTINUE READING
