With an aim to examine behavioural and physiological changes during emotion elicitation, 30 participants were shown audio, video or audio-video versions of movie clips depicting anger, fear, happiness, sadness, surprise and neutral expressions. While watching these stimuli, the eye-tracking glass was used to record oculomotoric changes. Heart rate, blood volume and respiration rate were also recorded. After viewing each clip the participants had to label and rate the emotion depicted in the movie clip. The data was analyzed with respect to valence, motoric direction and arousal dimensions of emotions. Findings of the behavioural data and corresponding change in the respiration rate suggest that fear is the only emotion that equally impacted participants psychologically as well as physiologically. The number of fixations and saccades for positive and negative emotions differed significantly.
