Abstract

While the number of people with mild depression and emotional disorders is increasing, it is an issue that there is little support for them. These mild illness people, it is not very easy to understand the emotional status of themselves and tends to lose control of emotion. There are several therapies approach to control psychological status. However, there are little objectively observed approaches to evaluate them. In recent years, an objective method has been proposed to recognize the psychological changes of people by analyzing the biological signals with sensors. We assume this approach will be effective in detecting the emotional status objectively. Based on the idea, we preliminary propose a tool that can objectively detect the emotional status using the biological signals such as EEG and heart rate sensors with the emotion estimation method and present a therapy color which aims to control their emotion toward the target emotional state. Then evaluate the effect of emotion by the method. In this paper, we describe the assumption and proposed method and developed tool, and preliminary experiment by using them. Then, we discussed the effectiveness of our approach.
