In this chapter we introduce the concept of using physiological signals as an indicator of emotional state. We review the ambulatory techniques for physiological measurement of the autonomic and central nervous system as they might be used in human–machine interaction. A brief history of using human physiology in HCI leads to a discussion of the state of the art of multimodal pattern recognition of physiological signals. The overarching question of whether results obtained in a laboratory can be applied to ecological HCI remains unanswered.
