  author={Jennifer Sorinas and J. M. Ferr{\'a}ndez and Eduardo Fern{\'a}ndez},
In order to develop more precise and functional affective applications, it is necessary to achieve a balance between the psychology and the engineering applied to emotions. Signals from the central and peripheral nervous systems have been used for emotion recognition purposes, however, their operation and the relationship between them remains unknown. In this context, in the present work we have tried to approach the study of the psychobiology of both systems in order to generate a… 


A new model for the implementation of positive and negative emotion recognition
Based on wavelet package for spectral feature extraction, attending to the nature of the EEG signal, some of the main parameters needed for the implementation of robust positive and negative emotion classification are specified.
Feature selection for multimodal emotion recognition in the arousal-valence space
Recursive Feature Elimination is performed to select a subset of features that allows emotion classification, and it is shown that the Galvanic Skin Response (GSR) is relevant for arousal classification, while the electroencephalogram (EEG) isrelevant for valence.
Emotion Recognition Using Physiological Signals
The research indicated the feasibility of user-independent emotion recognition using physiological signals, and before emotion interpretation can occur at the level of human abilities, there still remains much work to be done.
Emotion and the autonomic nervous system: A prospectus for research on autonomic specificity.
The question of whether there are different patterns of autonomic nervous system responses for different emotions is examined. Relevant conceptual issues concerning both the nature of emotion and the
Functional neuroanatomy of emotions: A meta-analysis
Novel statistical techniques were applied to the meta-analysis of 106 PET and fMRI studies of human emotion and predictions made by key neuroscientific models demonstrated partial support for asymmetry accounts.
Identifying Suitable Brain Regions and Trial Size Segmentation for Positive/Negative Emotion Recognition
The present study investigates the feasibility of real-time emotion recognition implementation by the selection of parameters such as the appropriate time window segmentation and target bandwidths and cortical regions and shows preliminary results that provide a reliable way to develop accurate EEG-based emotion classification.
EEG-based emotion recognition during watching movies
This study aims at finding the relationship between EEG signals and human emotions. EEG signals are used to classify two kinds of emotions, positive and negative. First, we extracted features from
Heart Rate Variability Signal Features for Emotion Recognition by Using Principal Component Analysis and Support Vectors Machine
The results showed the feasibility of daily emotion monitoring by using extracted HRV features and SVM classifier, which is lower slightly than other studies.
An accurate emotion recognition system using ECG and GSR signals and matching pursuit method
An accurate emotion recognition system was proposed using MP algorithm and wavelet dictionaries and the highest recognition rate of 100% was achieved for sigma = 0.01 in all classification schemes.

This survey explicitly explores the multidisciplinary foundation that underlies all AC applications by describing how AC researchers have incorporated psychological theories of emotion and how these theories affect research questions, methods, results, and their interpretations.
