EMPROS stands for "Event Related Emotional Prosody Recognition fMRI Task". This software implements a paradigm, i.e., a sequence of stimuli to be proposed to a subject, in order to study the perception of emotions with functional MRI. The subject hears meaningless but emotionally charged pseudo-words or onomatopes and selects the evoked emotion among 5 emotions (joy, fear, sadness, anger, neutral) by pushing a button. The response of the subject is registered while a BOLD fMRI acquisition images his/her brain. This paradigm aims at detecting the cortical areas involved in emotional perception.

This software will be distributed as open source code.
