Current approaches to automated analysis have focused on a small set of prototypic expressions (e.g., joy or anger). Prototypic expressions occur infrequently in everyday life, however, and emotion expression is far more varied. To capture the full range of emotion expression, automated discrimination of fine-grained changes in facial expression is needed.(More)
The face is a rich source of information about human behavior. Available methods for coding facial displays, however, are human-observer dependent, labor intensive, and difficult to standardize. To enable rigorous and efficient quantitative measurement of facial displays, we have developed an automated method of facial display analysis. In this report, we(More)
Mother-infant interaction has a dialogic or conversational structure that depends on the mother’s ability to respond quickly and consistently to infant vocalizations (Beebe, Jaffe, Feldstein, Mays, & Alson, 1985). The timing of maternal responses to infant vocalizations may be impaired in depression. Depression typically results in psychomotor retardation(More)
