The project "Brain Decoding of Affective Multimedia Contents (DECAF)" a joint proposal with Nicu Sebe of DISI-UniTnhas been approved by the ethics comitee of UniTN.

Abstract: The project investigates the characterization of affect (valence and arousal) using the Magnetoencephalogram (MEG) brain signal. We attempt single-trial classification of movie and music videos with MEG responses. The research questions are

  1. does the MEG signal effectively encode affective viewer responses?
  2. are arousal video clips better predicted than valence employing MEG?
  3. is the prediction performance better for movie clips as compared to music videos?
