PsychSim 5: EXPRESSING EMOTION Name: Kai-Ting,Chen Section: S01 Date: 02/03/10 In this activity you will learn about the role of facial expressions in the nonverbal communication of emotion. Primary Affects What emotions are generally considered primary affects? How do they relate to facial expressions? Happiness, sadness, surprise, fear, anger, and disgust. When an emotion is experienced, a neural program sends messages to the face, causing certain muscles to contract and other to relax. These movements produce a characteristic facial expression lasting anywhere from a fraction of a second to several seconds. The Facial Code Using the table below, describe the characteristic positions of the eyebrows, eyes, and mouth for each of the six primary affects. Eyebrows Eyes Mouth 1. Surprise Raised and curved Opened wide, both eyelids pulled apart Lip relaxed, jaw dropped 2. Fear Raised Open wide, lower eyelid tense Open but tense(often asymmetrical) 3.
