Previous literature studies demonstrated that affect can be positively or negatively influenced by single images, sounds and videos. In this study it has been investigated the effect of a software named 2VitaB-Cognitive on people stress: this software generates a multimedia sequence composed of positive images, sounds and video that can be presented on a PC, tablet, or smartphone. An experimental activity has been performed to verify the impact of the stimulation with the multimedia sequence on both affect and vigilance of 10 volunteers. Participants stress level was assessed using the PSS-10; they also filled in some scales and questionnaires (PANAS, SAM and GVAS) and completed the PVT vigilance task both before and after the administration of the multimedia sequence. The effect of the stimulation on affect and vigilance has been defined comparing answers to questionnaires and task results before and after the administration of the multimedia sequence. Results indicated that the multimedia stimulation can produce a modification on human affect and vigilance.

Abstract

Previous literature studies demonstrated that affect can be positively or negatively influenced by single images, sounds and videos. In this study it has been investigated the effect of a software named 2VitaB-Cognitive on people stress: this software generates a multimedia sequence composed of positive images, sounds and video that can be presented on a PC, tablet, or smartphone. An experimental activity has been performed to verify the impact of the stimulation with the multimedia sequence on both affect and vigilance of 10 volunteers. Participants stress level was assessed using the PSS-10; they also filled in some scales and questionnaires (PANAS, SAM and GVAS) and completed the PVT vigilance task both before and after the administration of the multimedia sequence. The effect of the stimulation on affect and vigilance has been defined comparing answers to questionnaires and task results before and after the administration of the multimedia sequence. Results indicated that the multimedia stimulation can produce a modification on human affect and vigilance.
