In the paper it is shown that at present the problem of measurements of emotions as multidimensional (multiparametric) quantities is of interest. A measurement model developed by the authors is presented. It enables signals-stimuli generating emotions in sound combinations and their series to be selected and quantitatively estimated. The measurement model provides an adjusted delay (short-time memory) and joint non-linear conversion of audible and delayed acoustical signals, selection of infrasound signals-stimuli as well as identification of emotional images including the ensembles of signals-stimuli and their series. It is demonstrated how the “mechanism” of emotional perception of sound impacts was developed in the process of evolution. Possibilities to decode the emotional content of biolinguistic signals of animals are considered. Future trends of investigations are indicated.
