Abstract

A system for providing music employing electroencephalography for music therapy is described. Music therapy for the treatment of patients suffering mental illness has been attempted over a period of 20 years. To reduce stress, it is preferable to listen to music that matches a person's emotions. However, it is difficult to know exactly the person's emotion. It is necessary to calibrate the proposed system employing electroencephalography to emotions. We discuss a method of calibration especially used in canonical correlation analysis. Experimental results show that it is possible to roughly estimate feelings. We consider that it is possible to use our system in practice.
