Measure your emotions

 

What pictures do you respond to?

 

Some pictures arouse emotions in you - for example anger, disgust, surprise, shock, happiness or lust. Using equipment which measures galvanic skin response, these unconscious emotional reactions can be detected.

 

Over 100 willing visitors took part in a real-life experiment to see what pictures they responded to.

 

The volunteers were asked to place their fore and middle fingers into two metal thimbles. By passing a tiny electrical current across their fingers, the thimbles were able to pick up minute changes in the amount of sweat. A picture which caused an emotional response caused more sweating.

 

Here are some of the pictures we showed visitors:


 
Intrigued, interested, aroused, surprised?
 
Reminder of an emotional event?
  Scared of spiders?
