Embodying Emotion
Recent findings provide a scientific account of the familiar contention that “when you're smiling, the whole world smiles with you”. Expand
Embodiment in Attitudes, Social Perception, and Emotion
This work proposes that theories of embodied cognition, such as the Perceptual Symbol Systems (PSS) account (Barsalou, 1999), explain and integrate findings, and shows how the PSS account addresses criticisms that have previously posed problems for the general embodiment approach. Expand
BRIEF REPORT Perception of the duration of emotional events
Participants were trained on a temporal bisection task in which visual stimuli (a pink oval) of 400 ms and 1600 ms served as short and long standards, respectively. They were then presentedExpand
The Simulation of Smiles (SIMS) model: Embodied simulation and the meaning of facial expression
Behavioral research from social psychology with recent research in neurosciences is integrated to provide coherence to the extant and future research on embodied cognition to advance the application of theories of embodied cognition in the study of facial expression of emotion. Expand
Are shame and guilt related to distinct self-discrepancies? A test of Higgins's (1987) hypotheses.
A study of 229 undergraduates examined whether specific self-discrepancies are differentially related to shame proneness and guilt proneness, and the tendency to experience shame, but not guilt, was positively related to all types of self- Discrepancies. Expand
"If only I weren't" versus "if only I hadn't": distinguishing shame and guilt in counterfactual thinking.
The role of counterfactual thinking in specific emotions and in differentiating shame- and guilt-prone personalities is discussed. Expand
Embodiment of emotion concepts.
Experiment 4, using a property generation task, provided support for the conclusion that emotions embodied in conceptual tasks are context-dependent situated simulations rather than associated emotional reactions and implications for theories of embodied simulation and for emotion theories are discussed. Expand
Implicit perception of affective information
Abstract Two experiments were conducted to demonstrate the implicit perception of nonverbal affective information. In the first experiment, subjects saw slides of a novel cartoon character pairedExpand
Embodied temporal perception of emotion.
Results revealed that participants overestimated the duration of emotional faces relative to the neutral faces only when imitation was possible, and implications for the role of embodiment in emotional perception are discussed. Expand
When did her smile drop? Facial mimicry and the influences of emotional state on the detection of change in emotional expression
Participants in manipulated emotional states played computerised movies in which facial expressions of emotion changed into categorically different expressions. The participants' task was to detectExpand
