Recent research in the field of Human Computer Interaction aims at recognizing the user's emotional state in order to provide a smooth interface between humans and computers. This would make life easier and can be used in vast applications involving areas such as education, medicine etc. Human emotions can be recognized by several approaches such as gesture, facial images, physiological signals and neuro imaging methods. Most of the researchers have developed user dependent emotion recognition system and achieved maximum classification rate. Very few researchers have tried to develop a user independent system and obtained lower classification rate. Efficient emotion stimulus method, larger data samples and intelligent signal processing techniques are essential for improving the classification rate of the user independent system. In this paper, we present a review on emotion recognition using physiological signals. The various theories on emotion, emotion recognition methodology and the current advancements in emotion research are discussed in subsequent topics. This would provide an insight on the current state of research and its challenges on emotion recognition using physiological signals, so that research can be advanced to obtain better recognition.
