## What are the physiological signs of an emotion de-regulation episode?
Situations where emotional dysregulation occur are usually activated by stress triggers. These can have physiological effects on the body, much the same as with regular high stress effects. It is these which need to find an equivalent sensor to monitor them.
- Rapid heart rate.
- Elevated blood pressure.
- Increase in skin humidity.

HUME - The HUME is an emotion recognition platform based on sensors, behavioural models and machine learning. The sensors measure physiological characteristics such as heart rate, skin conduction and activity. This information is converted into usable information in the HUME database by means of behavioural models.
