Analysis of the temporal changes of facial features in reaction to self-selected music (created with the Noldus facereader 6 - software; Noldus Information Technology).

The poster will present an overview about Diana's Master's Thesis that has been submitted in June 2016. 

The main objective of this presentation will be to give an overview about the methods that have been used to study emotions in music in general, and to present a framework in which music-evoked emotions can be studied rather than perceived emotions in music. In this framework it will be discussed to what extent measuring facial expressions of emotion in reaction to music can serve as a more reliable indicator of an underlying (evoked) emotion than traditional methods, like self-report and physiological measurements.
