    In the field of Affective Computing the affective experience (AX) of the user during the interaction with computers is of great interest. Physiological and neurophysiological sensors assess the state of the peripheral and central nervous system. Their analysis can provide information about the state of a user. We introduce an approach to elicit emotions by audiovisual stimuli for the exploration of (neuro-)physiological correlates of affective experience. Thereby we are able to control for the affect-eliciting modality, enabling the study of general and modality-specific correlates of affective responses. We present evidence from self-reports, physiological, and neurophysiological data for the successful induction of the affective experiences aimed for, and thus for the validity of the elicitation approach.
