  "abstract": "<p>The Electroencaphalography (EEG) and facial Electromyography (EMG) signals included in this data set were collected&nbsp;in the context of a previous study conducted by van Peer, Grandjean&nbsp;and Scherer (2014).&nbsp;That study addressed three fundamental questions regarding&nbsp;the mechanisms underlying the appraisal process:&nbsp;Whether appraisal criteria are processed (a) in a&nbsp;fixed sequence, (b) independent of each other, and&nbsp;(c) by different neural structures or circuits. In&nbsp;that study, an oddball paradigm with affective pictures&nbsp;was used to experimentally manipulate novelty&nbsp;and intrinsic pleasantness appraisals. EEG was&nbsp;recorded during task performance, together with&nbsp;facial EMG, to measure, respectively, cognitive processing&nbsp;and efferent responses stemming from the&nbsp;appraisal manipulations.&nbsp;The&nbsp;data set made here publicly available contains the exact same data used by Coutinho,&nbsp;Gentsch,&nbsp;van Peer,&nbsp;Scherer and Schuller (to appear). The only difference in relation to the original data is that the some of the pre-processing steps (i.e., the&nbsp;processing of the raw data) were changed in order to improve the detection of artifacts. The full details of the original study, data collected, pre-processing steps and final data set are included in&nbsp;the paper distributed with the data (study1_dataset.pdf).</p>\n\n<p><strong>References</strong></p>\n\n<p>Coutinho E,&nbsp;Gentsch k,&nbsp;van Peer JM,&nbsp;Scherer KR &amp; Schuller BW (to appear).&nbsp;Evidence of Emotion-Antecedent Appraisal Checks in Electroencephalography and Facial Electromyography. <em>PloS One</em>.</p>\n\n<p>van Peer JM, Grandjean D, Scherer KR (2014).
