- Annotate sports footage with expected levels of valency and arousal
- Expose test subject to the same footage whilst gathering their feedback on valency and arousal
- Measure test subject's physiological response whilst watching footage
- By comparing these results to the pre-annotated results, we can see how well we can predict levels of valency and arousal from this media.
- If there is enough time, we can use steps 1-4 on other forms of sports footage to see any correspondence in valency and arousal levels between different types of sports (e.g. if a test subject's team scores in any sport, we would at least expect positive valency)
The stimulus to be used will either be 1 half (45 minutes) of a UEFA Europa Cup game (football/soccer), or 1 half of a locally broadcast NRL game (rugby league). This will be finalised by Tuesday (2 days from now), as I'm contacting potential test subjects for their availability with this experiment.
