Abstract : Multimedia quality evaluation recently started to take into account also analysis of emotional response to audio- visual stimuli. This is especially true for quality of experience evaluation. Self-assessed affective reports are commonly used for this purpose. Nevertheless, measuring emotions via physiological measurement might be also considered as it could limit the effects of cognitive bias due to self-report following the rule that your body cannot lie. In this paper we first review in the context of emotion assessment, common physiological measurements such as cardiac and respiratory rhythms, Electroencephalography (EEG) and Galvanic Skin Resistance (GSR); more advanced techniques as infrared thermography or blood perfusion with laser Doppler flowmetry. Then we present some results of electrophysiological measures related to the evaluation of emotions triggered by sounds.
