The Ekman 60 Faces Test can be used to assess recognition of facial expressions of basic emotions. The maximum test score indicating best performance is 60 for all six emotions and 10 for each basic emotion. The computer software for the test was available on CD-ROM . Paul Ekman's Early Research | Paul Ekman International plc. Facial expressions are the voluntary and involuntary movements that occur when one or more of the 43 facial muscles on the face are engaged. They are a rich source of non-verbal communication and display a vast amount of emotional and cognitive information Ekman and col-leagues (eg Ekman and Friesen 1978; Ekman 1979) have systematically examined the function of eyebrows in facial expressions that signal emotions. In developing their system of facial-expression analysis, Ekman and Friesen (1976, 1978) compartmental-ized the face into three regions: an upper component consisting of the eyebrows an Matsumoto and Ekman's Japanese and Caucasian Facial Expressions of Emotion (JACFEE): Reliability data and cross-national differences.

Measurement of Facial Signals The facial action coding system ~FACS !~Ekman & Friesen, 1978! was developed to directly measure facial behavior.1 Previous ap-proaches to the study of facial expression measured information that observers infer from facial expressions. The difference be Ekman's (1968) pioneering research showed that facial expressions of emotion are similar across cultures and races, and a meta-analysis by Elfenbein and Ambady (2002) confirmed that cross-group emotion recognition occurs at better than chance levels.

Facial expression recognition is the last stage of AFEA systems. The facial changes can be identiﬁed as facial action units or prototypic emotional expressions (see Section 2.1 for deﬁnitions). Depending on if the temporal information is used, in this chapter we classiﬁed th With regard to facial expressions of emotion, these regulatory mechanisms are known as display rules (Ekman & Friesen, 1969). Display rules are learned early in life and dictate the management and modification of facial expressions depending on social circumstances. There are seven ways in which expressions can be regulated (Ekman & Friesen, 1969)
Since the original universality studies more than 30 studies examining judgments of facial expressions have replicated the universal recognition of emotion in the face (reviewed in Matsumoto, 2001). In addition a meta-analysis of 168 datasets examining judgments of emotion in the face and other nonverbal stimuli indicated universal emotion.

Izard has reported that emotion recognition by children is also positively correlated with intelligence. Relatively little attention has been given to relationships between emotional and social maladjustment and the perception of facial expressions of adults (Ekman & Friesen, 1968; Grant, 1972) or children
They include the techniques for face acquisition, facial data extraction and representation, facial expression recognition, and multimodal expression analysis. The chapter concludes with a discussion assessing the current status, future possibilities, and open questions about automatic facial expression analysis emotions are aroused, the same facial expressions of emotion are reliably produced by people all around the world and from all walks of life (Matsumoto, Keltner, O'Sullivan, & Frank, 2007). Subsequent research has also demonstrated the universal recognition of contempt (Ekman & Friesen, 1986), and that facial expressions of emotion are part of Paul Ekman (born February 15, 1934)  is an American psychologist and professor emeritus at the University of California, San Francisco who is a pioneer in the study of emotions and their relation to facial expressions.He was ranked 59th out of the 100 most cited psychologists of the twentieth century.

The ability of recognizing emotional facial expressions was assessed with the Ekman 60-faces test (Emotion recognition task). Participants were video-recorded while posing facial expressions of 6 primary emotions (happiness, sadness, surprise, disgust, fear and anger) The Ekman 60-Faces (EK-60F) Test is a well-known neuropsychological tool assessing emotion recognition from facial expressions. It is the most employed task for research purposes in psychiatric and neurological disorders, including neurodegenerative diseases, such as the behavioral variant of Frontotemporal Dementia (bvFTD). Despite its remarkable usefulness in the social cognition research. Testing of facial expression recognition is notoriously tricky. Stimulus sets that predated the Ekman and Friesen (1976) series often led to very variable responses b The technology is a natural evolution of facial recognition systems, they showed a completely different set of expressions, Ekman says.

Observer-Based Measurement of Facial Expression With the Facial Action Coding System Jeffrey F. Cohn Zara Ambadar Paul Ekman 203 Facial expression has been a focus of emotion research for over a hundred years (Darwin, 1872/1998). It is central to several leading theories of emotion (Ekman, 1992; Izard, 1977

It was then that Ekman discovered that humans are capable of performing more than 10,000 facial expressions. Of these, only 3,000 are related to emotions. Universal expressions of emotion. In the 1950s, following Darwin's findings, scientists believed that facial expressions, along with their meanings, were biologically determined and universal emotions shown by facial expressions. Emotion recognition There are several theories concerning recognition of facial expressions of emotion. One of the first theories is from Ekman en Friesen, the facial feedback hypothesis (e.g. Buck, 1980).

1. Introduction. In 1969, Ekman and Friesen (1969) spotted a quick full-face emotional expression in a filmed interview which revealed a strong negative feeling a psychiatric patient was trying to hide from her psychiatrist in order to convince that she was no longer suicidal. When the interview video was played in slow motion, it was found that the patient was showing a very brief sad face. ., B. Bullot, and R.

READ PAPER Background: This study developed a photo and video database of 4-to-6-year-olds expressing the seven induced and posed universal emotions and a neutral expression. Children participated in photo and video sessions designed to elicit the emotions, and the resulting images were further assessed by independent judges in two rounds.Methods: In the first round, two independent judges (1 and 2. This latter question may tie in with recent work on human neuroimaging that suggests that neural systems important for face identity recognition and processing emotional content from facial expressions are, in fact, dissociable (Haxby et al., 2000; Kesler-West et al., 2001; Phan et al., 2004).

4 Facial Expression recognition should not be confused with human Emotion Recognition. As Fasel and Luttin point out, ´ Facial Expression recognition deals with the classification of facial motion and facial feature deformation into classes that are purely based on visual informa tionµ whereas ´ Emotion Recognition i Human Facial Expressions as Adaptations: Ekman and Kelt-ner, 1997). In addition to the six basic facial expressions, there are also coordinated, stereotyped nonverbal displays that include stereotyped facial expression in expression recognition reported (Haidt and Keltner, 1999). Fig. 2 Ekman says you can learn the fundamentals of reading facial expressions in about an hour using an interactive CD-ROM he has put together that's available on his website, www.paulekman.com Ekman and colleagues explored facial expression recognition in non-literate cultures using their 'standard' and 'Dashiell' methods.

There are eight low-intensity and eight high-intensity expressions of each emotion and 16 neutral expressions
Back then, most facial-expressions researchers simply showed some pictures to subjects and asked for their interpretation. Ekman suspected this measured what people thought about the face itself. Paul Ekman discusses some of his classic research on facial expression of emotion

3. Expressions and Emotions A facial expression is a gesture executed with the facial muscles, which convey the emotional state of the subject to observers. An expression sends a message about a person's internal feeling. In Hebrew, the word for face, has the same letters as the word represents within or inside Ekman mentored Frank, who has gone on to build off Ekman's early research. Frank's focus has been to develop a system that uses those facial emotional cues to home in on lies. He zeroes in on tics. A formative figure behind the claim that there are universal facial expressions of emotion is the psychologist Paul Ekman. In the 1960s, he travelled the highlands of Papua New Guinea to test his. Facial processing is an important aspect of interpersonal communication and a significant modulator of social behavior. Facial expressions of emotion can provide information about another person's emotional state and enable one to predict another person's probable actions. 1 Facial expressions that humans can reliably identify include anger, fear, sadness, happiness, surprise, and disgust. 2,3. Past research on facial expressions of emotion has focused on the study of six basic categories—happiness, surprise, anger, sadness, fear, and disgust. However, many more facial expressions of emotion exist and are used regularly by humans. This paper describes an important group of expressions, which we call compound emotion categories

It has been noticed that the performance of multi-ethnic facial expression recognition is affected by other-race effect significantly.

In fact, there is substantial evidence for seven universal emotions that are each associated with distinct facial expressions In 1978 Ekman and Friesen updated Facial Action Coding System (FACS), originally developed by a Swedish anatomist Carl-Herman Hjortsjö. FACS is a tool for classification of all facial expressions that humans can make. Each component of facial movement is called an action unit (AU) and all facial expressions can be broken down to action units Emotional signals are crucial for sharing important information, with conspecifics, for example, to warn humans of danger. Humans use a range of different cues to communicate to others how they feel, including facial, vocal, and gestural signals.

Recently, with the use of deep learning and especially convolutional neural networks (CNNs) , many features can be extracted and learned for a decent facial expression recognition system [7, 18].It is, however, noteworthy that in the case of facial expressions, much of the clues come from a few parts of the face, e.g. the mouth and eyes, whereas other parts, such as ears and hair, play. Emotions and facial expressions are core component of communication. Detection of emotion can help one to communicate accordingly. Recent research suggest the importance of facial expression and emotions in machines. One of the pioneer in facial expression detection, Dr. Paul Ekman suggests that facial expressions and emotions are common in.
