Identifying human emotions based on brain activity

Identifying human emotions based on brain activity | Simulation-Based Education | Scoop.it

For the first time, scientists at Carnegie Mellon University have identified which emotion a person is experiencing based on brain activity. 

 

The study, published in the June 19 issue of PLOS ONE, combines functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and machine learning to measure brain signals to accurately read emotions in individuals. Led by researchers in CMU’s Dietrich College of Humanities and Social Sciences, the findings illustrate how the brain categorizes feelings, giving researchers the first reliable process to analyze emotions. Until now, research on emotions has been long stymied by the lack of reliable methods to evaluate them, mostly because people are often reluctant to honestly report their feelings. Further complicating matters is that many emotional responses may not be consciously experienced.

 

Identifying emotions based on neural activity builds on previous discoveries by CMU’s Marcel Just and Tom M. Mitchell, which used similar techniques to create a computational model that identifies individuals’ thoughts of concrete objects, often dubbed “mind reading.”

 

“This research introduces a new method with potential to identify emotions without relying on people’s ability to self-report,” said Karim Kassam, assistant professor of social and decision sciences and lead author of the study. “It could be used to assess an individual’s emotional response to almost any kind of stimulus, for example, a flag, a brand name or a political candidate.”

Alex Wade's curator insight, September 13, 2013 3:24 AM

Nolan Bushnell is the Godfather of videogames.  The founder of Atari demonstrates that technological changes in the classroom is driven by wider pedagogical requirements and this is reflected in the uses of games in the education sector, where, in common with much contemporary thinking the learner is responsible for acquistion of knowledge and the teacher is the facilitator, or in Bushnell's vernacular the 'Dungeon Master'.
