Emotions are the state of mind and behavioural approach individuals use to influence their own emotional expertise It is the inclusive term to individual, attentive practice that is described mainly by psycho physiological expression, mental states, biological reaction. Emotions are combining and express accordingly with mood, activity, temperature, nature and personality. In reasonable decision making and determined action emotions play the important role. Emotions give the ability to deal with unplanned occasion in our background which helps to increase our chance of survival. Physiological signal composes vital signals in the human body. In particular to, to identify human emotions several physiologic signals have been used widely these signals are collected from Electroencephalogram, Electrocardiogram, Electromyogram, Respiratory system, Electrodermal activities, Muscular system and Brain activity. The purpose of this study is to recognize the mental emotional state of a human body by using EEG signal, which recognize the human emotions. This study would provide a deep view on current state of the research and require on emotion recognition based on the analysis of EEG physiological signals.
