Description:

Positive and negative thoughts have a great impact on the human organism. The main purpose of this work is to analyze the physiological effects of negative thougths using affective computing techniques. With this aim, we carried out an experiment in which participants had to recall past negative experiences while their physiological signals were being collected. Then, using two althgoritnms based on biosignal analysis, we assessed their levels of stress and relaxation at each time. According to the results, 100% of the participants who had negative thougths produced a physiological response to stress. This is promising, since it could enable affective computing based systems to adapt to the emotional state of the users thougth the real time monitoring of the physiologival signals of the human body.
