Perception of “Live” Facial Expressions
The article provides a review of experimental studies of interpersonal perception on the material of static and dynamic facial expressions as a unique source of information about the person’s inner
Sensorimotor Activity and Network Connectivity to Dynamic and Static Emotional Faces in 7-Month-Old Infants
Results suggest that, contrarily to neutral and angry faces, happy expressions elicit sensorimotor activity at 7 months and dynamic emotional faces are more efficiently processed by functional brain networks and provide evidence of the existence of a right-lateralized activity for the processing of happy facial expressions.
Expanding Simulation Models of Emotional Understanding: The Case for Different Modalities, Body-State Simulation Prominence, and Developmental Trajectories
This review article argues that simulation accounts of emotion recognition would benefit from three key extensions, including fuller consideration be given to simulation of bodily and vocal expressions, given that the body and voice are also important expressive channels for providing cues to another’s emotional state.
Статья посвящена экспериментальным исследованиям межличностного восприятия на материале статики и динамики выражений лица как уникального источника информации о внутреннем мире человека. В центре


The development of spontaneous facial responses to others’ emotions in infancy: An EMG study
Electromyography results suggest that emotional SFRs may be the result of complex neurocognitive mechanisms which lead to partial mimicry but are also likely to be influenced by evaluative processes.
Mimicking emotions: how 3–12-month-old infants use the facial expressions and eyes of a model
The results suggest that valence-congruent expressions emerge in infancy during a period where the decoding of facial expressions becomes increasingly sensitive to the social signal value of emotions.
Generalized discrimination of positive facial expression by seven- and ten-month-old infants.
The pattern of results suggests that it is not until sometime after 7 months of age that dependence on the presence of expression-specific features for affect recognition and discrimination diminishes, and by 10 months of year, infants are beginning to recognize the affective similarity of familiar positive facial expressions.
Automatic facial mimicry in response to dynamic emotional stimuli in five-month-old infants
It is revealed that automatic facial mimicry is present as early as five months of age, when multimodal emotional information is present.
Unconscious Facial Reactions to Emotional Facial Expressions
The results show that both positive and negative emotional reactions can be unconsciously evoked, and particularly that important aspects of emotional face-to-face communication can occur on an unconscious level.
Facial reactions to facial expressions.
It was found that happy and angry faces evoked different facial EMG response patterns, with increased zygomatic region activity to happy stimuli and increased corrugator regionactivity to angry stimuli.
Developmental and Individual Differences in the Neural Processing of Dynamic Expressions of Pain and Anger
Investigating the processing of facial expressions of pain and anger in 8-month-old infants and adults by measuring event-related brain potentials (ERPs) and frontal EEG alpha asymmetry revealed developmental differences in the motivational processes engendered by these facial expressions.
