Dynamic Emotional Communication View all 24 Articles. Research on facial emotion expression has mostly focused on emotion recognition, assuming that a small number of discrete emotions is elicited and expressed via prototypical facial muscle configurations as captured in still photographs. These are expected to be recognized by observers, presumably via template matching. In contrast, appraisal theories of emotion propose a more dynamic approach, suggesting that specific elements of facial expressions are directly produced by the result of certain appraisals and predicting the facial patterns to be expected for certain appraisal configurations. This approach has recently been extended to emotion perception, claiming that observers first infer individual appraisals and only then make categorical emotion judgments based on the estimated appraisal patterns, using inference rules. Here, we report two related studies to empirically investigate the facial action unit configurations that are used by actors to convey specific emotions in short affect bursts and to examine to what extent observers can infer a person's emotions from the predicted facial expression configurations.

The field of facial expression analysis FEA is over a hundred years old, and has now come of age. The detection of emotional expressions by automatic analysis has matured into a reliable methodology that is widely used in a variety of research. These advanced methods have of course stood on the shoulders of previous research. All of which should help you in your understanding of what has been — and will continue to be — important in the facial expression analysis world. Ekman — essentially the father of facial expression analysis — is inevitably the prime feature of this list.
Facial expression recognition is one of the hot spots in recent years, it applies in the emotional analysis, pattern recognition and interpersonal interaction. This paper introduces the recent advances and applications in facial expression recognition from the face detection, feature extraction, classification, and the ethnic expression recognition. The methods of feature extraction are divided to several different characteristic categories.

A new study of centuries-old Mesoamerican statues lends weight to the idea that many human facial expressions are universal.
