Electroencephalography (EEG)-based emotion computing has become one of the research hotspots of human-computer interaction (HCI). However, it is difficult to effectively learn the interactions between brain regions in emotional states by using traditional convolutional neural networks because there is information transmission between neurons, which constitutes the brain network structure. In this paper, we proposed a novel model combining graph convolutional network and convolutional neural

Particularly, we add style-based recalibration module to CNN to extract deep layer features, which can better select features that are highly related to emotion. We conducted two individual experiments on SEED data set and SEED-IV data set, respectively, and the experiments proved the effectiveness of MDGCN-SRCNN model. The recognition accuracy on SEED and SEED-IV is 95.08 and 85.52%, respectively. Our model has better performance than other state-of-art methods. In addition, by visualizing the distribution of different layers features, we prove that the combination of shallow layer and deep layer features can effectively improve the recognition performance. Finally, we verified the important brain regions and the connection relationships between channels for emotion generation by analyzing the connection weights between channels after model learning.
