Using a Smartphone to Measure Heart Rate Changes during Relived Happiness and Anger
April-June 2013 (vol. 4 no. 2)
pp. 238-241
Daniel Lakens, Eindhoven University of Technology, Eindhoven
This study demonstrates the feasibility of measuring heart rate (HR) differences associated with emotional states such as anger and happiness with a smartphone. Novice experimenters measured higher HRs during relived anger and happiness (replicating findings in the literature) outside a laboratory environment with a smartphone app that relied on photoplethysmography.
