We studied the time course of the cerebral integration of olfaction in the visual processing of emotional faces during an orthogonal task asking for detection of red-colored faces among expressive faces. Happy, angry, disgust, fearful, sad, and neutral faces were displayed in pleasant, aversive or no odor control olfactory contexts while EEG was recorded to(More)
Horizontal information is crucial to face processing in adults (Goffaux & Dakin, 2010). Yet the ontogeny of this preferential type of processing remains unknown. To clarify this issue, we tested 2 groups of 16 3-month-old infants in a preferential looking paradigm with upright (Group 1) or inverted (Group 2) stimuli. Each infant was exposed to 4 x 2(More)
(* These authors contributed equally to the research) The first year of life is critical in the development of the abilities to process facial expressions. Numerous studies have investigated discrimination and categorization of distinct facial expressions of emotion. However, infants' visual exploratory strategies of these facial expressions and their(More)
While there is an extensive literature on the tendency to mimic emotional expressions in adults, it is unclear how this skill emerges and develops over time. Specifically, it is unclear whether infants mimic discrete emotion-related facial actions, whether their facial displays are moderated by contextual cues and whether infants' emotional mimicry is(More)
