Perceived Gaze Direction and the Processing of Facial Displays of Emotion
The results of both studies confirmed the central hypothesis and suggest that gaze direction and facial expression are combined in the processing of emotionally relevant facial information.
Effects of direct and averted gaze on the perception of facially communicated emotion.
It was hypothesized that when gaze direction matches the underlying behavioral intent (approach-avoidance) communicated by an emotional expression, the perception of that emotion would be enhanced (i.e., shared signal hypothesis), and three studies supported this hypothesis.
Effects of Gaze on Amygdala Sensitivity to Anger and Fear Faces
The amygdala is thought to be part of a neural system responsive to potential threat and its well-documented sensitivity to fear faces is consistent with this, but there is paucity of evidence for a similar involvement of the amygdala in the processing of fear faces.
The Influence of Facial Emotion Displays, Gender, and Ethnicity on Judgments of Dominance and Affiliation
Facial expressions of emotions convey not only information about emotional states but also about interpersonal intentions. The present study investigated whether factors known to influence the…
Emotional expressivity in men and women: Stereotypes and self-perceptions
Three studies were conducted to assess prevalent stereotypes regarding men's and women's emotional expressivity as well as self-perceptions of their emotional behaviour. Emotion profiles were…
Differentiating emotion elicited and deliberate emotional facial expressions
Recent research suggests the potential importance of dynamic aspects (e.g. speed of onset and ofset and degree of irregularity) of facial movement for the encoding of spontaneous versus deliberate…
The effects of fear and anger facial expressions on approach- and avoidance-related behaviors.
The authors show that the anger expression facilitates avoidance-related behavior in participants, which supports the notion of this expression being a threatening stimulus and suggests it may represent an affiliative stimulus.
Face gender and emotion expression: are angry women more like men?
The results of the two studies showed that happiness and fear expressions bias sex discrimination toward the female, whereas anger expressions biassex perception toward the male.
The Intensity of Emotional Facial Expressions and Decoding Accuracy
The influence of the physical intensity of emotional facial expressions on perceived intensity and emotion category decoding accuracy was assessed for expressions of anger, disgust, sadness, and…

The findings support theories of emotion that assume that expressive responses serve a self-regulatory as well as a social-communicative function, and suggest that the self-regulation is mediated neurally, rather than via a process of self-attribution.
