Does breathing change the impression of a sound?

- Interactive relationship between respiration and sound, and its effect on emotion -

As long as we live, we never stop breathing, but does this cyclic activity have an effect on our perception? According to our study, breathing (inhalation, exhalation) does make a difference in how the body responds to presented sound. On top of this, the timing of the breathing and sound presentation changes the impression of the presented sound. In this presentation, we introduce our cutting-edge topics on this and share our vision of human interfaces that modify their stimulus presentation according to the state of human activity.
