Abstract

Emotions are a fundamental part of daily life. Two interconnected studies were conducted to create emotion clusters from a list of emotion words and use those clusters to rate a naturalistic stimulus—an episode of Sherlock. The correlations that can be drawn from the data collected can then place numerical values on an emotion word. Having these values makes it easier to analyze the similarity of emotion words and how emotional states relate to one another. The results of these studies will be used in further research dealing with predicting emotions of a human participant based on fMRIs.
