Abstract: Emotion detection recognition in physiological signal and categorization their of, is very challenging. There are many methods for detecting the emotional features from physiological and ECG is one of them. In this paper we have analyzed sixteen ECG signals of two different groups and tried to find some similarities among the same group and also between these two groups based on two parameters viz mean instantaneous frequency(MIF) and correlation coefficient, with an aim to classify their emotion.
Keywords: Electrocardiogram, emotion, empirical mode of decomposition, intrinsic mode function, mean instantaneous frequency
