BRIEF REPORTS The Voluntary Control of Facial Action Units in Adults Pierre Gosselin University of Ottawa Me´ lanie Perron Laurentian University Martin Beaupre´ University of Ottawa Hypothesis: the researchers investigated the voluntary control of 20 facial action units theoretically associated with 6 basic emotions (happiness, fear, anger, surprise, sadness, and disgust). Participants: Participants were 20 undergraduate and graduate students (10 men, 10 women) recruited at the University of Ottawa. All participants were French Canadian and had French as their first language. Each participant was paid C$20 for participating. Results: young adults succeeded in activating 18 of the 20 target actions units, although they often coactivated other action units. Voluntary control was clearly better for some action units than for others, with a pattern of differences between action units consistent with previous work in children and adolescents.
