Emotion Recognition Test

During the Emotion Recognition Test (ERT), images of faces gradually change from neutral to a certain emotion. The client is requested to recognise the emotion. This test, which has been developed by Prof. R. Kessels et al. is freely distributed in our platform. Norms are available as well. The following picture shows the authors in our stand at an NVN conference in Nijmegen.

A video of the Emotion Recognition Task is shown below. In this case, the test is administred on a 24 inch Wacom touch screen tablet. However, the test can be run on any Windows based laptop or PC.
