A Serious Game for Training in Emotion Regulation: From Design to Evaluation
2015 (English)Licentiate thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
Games are often used as training devices in various tasks, but proper biofeedback is more seldom used. Within an EU project it was explored how biofeedback games can target emotion regulation and be evaluated meaningfully. While many use games and biofeedback separately, here the focus was to combine them. This was explored through how the games were perceived and played while players were punished in-game, based on their physiological activity. By implementing games and study the interaction patterns in experimental settings, primarily correlational data was acquired. The results suggest that targeting cognitive constructs has to be validated for each specific game, since game strategies can influence the activation of the cognitive constructs.
