Speaker: Patricia Arriaga (ISCTE-IUL)


Title: Measuring Emotions Continuously: subjective and physiological responses.


AbstractThis presentation will focus on how emotions can be measured by combining self-report responses and physiological measures measured continuously and after exposure to emotional stimuli. The topic will cover research I have been conducting over the past years testing the effects of health-promoting media messages, multimedia applications, and video games.



Bio: Patrícia Arriaga holds a PhD in Social and Organizational Psychology (2006, ISCTE), is graduated in Psychology (1996, ISPA) and completed a Master in Clinical Psychology and Psychopathology (2000, ISPA). Currently, she is an Assistant Professor at ISCTE – University Institute of Lisbon, coordinates the Master in Sciences on Emotions (former title: "Psychology of Emotion") and is the vice-director of the Department of Social and Organizational Psychology at ISCTE-IUL. Research Interests: 1. Media and Entertainment Research: emotional gratification and the effects of video-games, movies, music on emotions, cognitions, and behavior. 2. Human-to-human interaction (e.g., hospital clown doctors intervention) and human-computer interaction (human-robot interaction, video-games, multimedia applications) on emotional, motivation and cognitive domains. 3. Flow of emotions and attention in narrative messages: Analyze continuously emotional and attentional shifts in individuals, combining self-report, physiological and behavioral responses.

C-BRAIN MeetingsIn 2015/2016, the C-BRAIN (COPELABS BRAINstorming) meetings occur monthly, Tuesdays, 14h00-15h30, COPELABS, room U.0.10, ground floor of Building U, University Lusofona. C-BRAINs are motivated by the interdisciplinary nature of COPELABS, and are intended to assist in creating sinergies and giving rise to new ideas, in contexts where Informatics meets Psychology.

SITI - Informatics Systems and Technologies Group

SITI w400SITI is focused upon user-centric trends that are emerging in several fields of Information and Communication Technology (ICT), OSI Layers 2 and 3. As in other grassroots movements, the user will have an active say concerning services provided and consequently, concerning the techno-social environment that surrounds him/her.

CTIP - Technology Intensive Psychology Group

CTIP w400This group is based (i.e. integrated members) on a core of scientifically active researchers from the former CEPCA (Pedro Gamito, Jorge Oliveira, Rodrigo Brito, Paulo Lopes, and Ana Loureiro) 2 more recent PhDs (Cristina Camilo and Bárbara Gonzalez). Note, however, that the CEPCA team (team size, funding and indicators included in 5.) changed substantially since 2008, when it had 8 PhDs (of which only PG remains) and 5 groups. In 2011-13 the team grew to 14 integrated PhDs in 2-3 groups. By 2013, however, it was clear that the bulk of CEPCA output of international level (13 of the 14 indicators in table 5.) was the responsibility of the neurocognitive/cyber therapy-focused group, with only 3 PhD and 2 non-PhD members (PI: PG). The inevitable consolidation of CEPCA around this core group pointed to the desirability of joining forces with an informatics team – SITILABS – to create COPELABS as an interdisciplinary R&D unit (see Description of the R&D unit).
