The proposed lecture will present advanced achievements in the field of affective computing towards more enhanced human-computer-interaction interfaces, presenting advanced signal processing techniques and implementations applied to Electroencephalogram (EEG) recordings. In particular, the way emotions are 'reflected' in our brain signals and the way actions (both in explicit and implicit way, e.g., gestures in music) are combined with internal representations in our brain (involving mirror neuron system activation), will be presented and discussed. Moreover, potential implementations of the findings in the field of human assistive technology will be shown, including innovative ways of pain management, bullying identification, and Parkinson’s and Alzheimer's community support.
