Live Biofeedback in Electronic Markets

Live Biofeedback in Electronic Markets

The influence of emotions on decision making is widely accepted and previous research showed that via emotion regulation decision makers can significantly improve their decisions. However, a sound perception of emotions is a foundation for beneficial emotion regulation. In this research project, we investigate the use of live biofeedback—the provision of real-time information about a person’s current physiological state—as a potential feature for decision support systems in online environments.
