Automatic emotion recognition based on electroencephalo-graphic (EEG) signals has received increasing attention in recent years. The Deep Residual Networks (ResNets) can solve vanishing gradient problem and exploding gradient problem well in computer vision and can learn more profound semantic information. And for traditional methods, frequency features often play important role in signal processing area. Thus, in this paper, we use the pre-trained ResNets to extract deep semantic information and the linear-frequency cepstral coefficients (LFCC) as features from raw EEG signals. Then the two features are fused to improve the emotion classification performance of our approach. Moreover, several classifiers are used for our fused features to evaluate the performance and it shows that the proposed approach is effective for emotion classification. We find that the best performance is achieved when use k-nearst neighbor (KNN) as classifier, and we provide a detailed discussion for the reason.
