However, a considerable part of the population is limited to express their emotions because they have little mobility in their body, difficulty to speak or deficiencies in their intellectual coefficient. Therefore, this work has two objectives: the first is to implement a methodology to induce emotions of happiness and sadness in people with physical and mental disabilities; the second is to analyze and capture brain activity using a "brain-computer interface (BCI)" to create a corpus of EEG patterns related to the emotions, which can be used for detect their emotional state automatically in future works. This work focuses mainly on present the results obtained in induction emotional states in 46 subjects with cerebral palsy and intellectual disability using film clips, which were evaluated by questionnaire of "Scale for Mood Assessment"

Index Terms:
emotions states, BCI, cerebral palsy, sadness, happiness.
