Congratulations to Dr Marta Ponari who has been awarded £4,849.20 from the Faculty of Social Sciences for a project titled "The role of facial mimicry and interoception in emotion recognition"! The project will involve collection of psychophysiological data (facial electromyography, EEG) during explicit and implicit facial expression recognition tasks, to investigate a) the role of facial mimicry in implicit vs explicit recognition of facial expressions; b) whether individual differences in interoception are correlated with emotion recognition abilities; and c) whether and how interoception is related to facial mimicry.
