Remembering faces with emotional expressions (2014)
Journal Article
Liu, C. H., Chen, W., & Ward, J. (2014). Remembering faces with emotional expressions. Frontiers in Psychology, 5(DEC), doi:10.3389/fpsyg.2014.01439

It is known that happy faces create more robust identity recognition memory than faces with some other expressions. However, this advantage was not verified against all basic expressions. Moreover, no research has assessed whether similar differences... Read More about Remembering faces with emotional expressions.

Facial expression is a major source of image variation in face images. Linking numerous expressions to the same face can be a huge challenge for face learning and recognition. It remains largely unknown what level of exposure to this image variation... Read More about Effects of exposure to facial expression variation in face learning and recognition.
