Dr. Clynes found a correlation between horizontal pressure deflection and valence. Winton, Putnam, and Krauss discovered a relationship between HR and valence. This new experiment tries to discover the relationship between a new sentic sensor and valence, using HR and the IAPS database as corroborating qualifiers against a self-reported assessment.
Dr. Clynes prescribes an exact positioning of the subject's body with respect to the sentograph to minimize the noise of the signal and maximize repeatability. It is hypothesized that humans naturally and unconsciously express their like or dislike through many pathways including HR, SC and sentic touch. Therefore these stringent lab conditions may not be strictly necessary. However, the conservation of right handed mouse use is still necessary both because of the nature of sentic data and the hardware used for its collection.
This is essentially a sentics experiment conducted in a more natural setting. A sentograph detector embedded in the mouse button allows detection of sentic tendencies during the presentation of emotionally affective slides. While inducing an emotional reaction through the subject's exposure to the IAPS database slides, the sentic data from the subject is monitored and compared against the self-reported data.
