In recent years, wavelet-based, Fourier-based and Hilbert-based time-frequency methods attracted attention in emotion state classification studies in human machine interaction. In particular, the Hilbert-based Empirical Mode Decomposition and Wavelet-based Discrete Wavelet Transform have found applications in emotional state analysis. In this study, a model of emotional elicitation is proposed in which the classification is made by using the features of the wavelet coefficients obtained after applying the Discrete Wavelet Transform to IMFs achieved by using Multivariate Empirical Mode Decomposition. Accordingly, EEG data available in the DEAP database were classified as low / high for valence, activation, and dominance dimensions, and 4 different classifiers were used in the classification phase. The best ratios of valence, activation and dominance were obtained ideally 70.1%, 58.8%, 60.3% respectively.
