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.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
