Emotional State Sensing by Using Hybrid Multivariate Empirical Mode Decomposition and Synchrosqueezing Transform
MetadataShow full item record
In recent years, utilizing Hilbert-based time frequency methods in emotional state sensing research attracted attention in the brain computer interfaces. Primarily, Hilbert Transform-based empirical mode decomposition (EMD) was found to be suitable for emotional state modeling studies. In more recent studies, models of emotional state recognition were proposed in which the classification was implemented by using the features obtained after applying the time, frequency, and time frequency domain methods to intrinsic mode functions achieved by operating EMD. In this study, an analysis of emotional state recognition is proposed by using the features of the synchrosqueezing coefficients obtained in the classification process after applying the Synchrosqueezing Transform to intrinsic mode functions achieved by using Multivariate EMD. As a result, EEG data available in the DEAP database were categorized as low and high for valence, activation, and dominance dimensions, and 4 different classifiers were utilized in the classification process. The most satisfying ratios of valence, activation and dominance were attained 76%, 68%, and 68% respectively.
