Statistical data analysis

#1
In my experiment I have two groups (experimental group and a control group) and every participant completes an emotion recognition task (with six different emotions) twice - once when they receive actual stimulation and one when they receive sham stimulation.

I am really struggling with the data analysis for this and have spent all week trying to figure it out.

I was thinking of doing a 6x2x2 (emotion type, group, stimulation type) ANOVA but am struggling on how I would interpret this.

I need the data analysis to answer my two main research questions:
- Whether the stimulation effects the experimental group more than the control group.
- If there is a difference between each emotion on the emotion recognition task.

You want to define emotion type and stimulation type as repeated-measures factors, I suppose.
- Whether the stimulation effects the experimental group more than the control group.
This is asking for an interaction effect.
- If there is a difference between each emotion on the emotion recognition task.
The main effect of emotion.

With kind regards
