Beyond Darwin: revealing culture-specificities in the temporal dynamics of 4D facial expressions
Vision Sciences Society Annual Meeting 2012, 11 - 16 May 2012, 53.314
Since Darwin’s seminal work, the Universality Hypothesis maintains that the six basic emotions – happy, surprise, fear, disgust, anger and sad – are expressed using the same set of distinctive facial movements across cultures.
Here, we refute the Universality Hypothesis and raise the question: if the 6 basic emotions are not universal, which emotions are basic in different cultures?
No relevant competing interests disclosed.
