About this Research Topic

Facial expressions demonstrate one emotional states in interpersonal
situations. Evidence shows that part of the facial display reflects the
emotional experience that is literally felt by the expresser.
Interestingly, human beings are capable of identifying facial expressions
of the felt emotions as a form of intentional deception to conduct social
interaction and to stage displays that have the support of others. Staged
or posed facial expressions implement an emotion that an expresser intends
to convey, where genuine expressions are considered as the companion of
spontaneous emotional expressions. The ability to differentiate genuine
displays of emotional experience from posed ones is very important for
dealing with day-to-day social interactions.

Recent work has been conducted on whether or not people can distinguish
between posed and genuine displays of emotion. In spite of few studies to
investigate this ability, most prior research suggests that people have the
ability to judge genuine and posed facial displays. Unfortunately, previous
research has suffered from two major shortcomings: (1) the mixture of
staged and genuine displays due to the lack of accounting for possible
effects of intentional manipulation, and (2) struggling to consider dynamic
aspects when people prepare facial stimuli for experimental investigation.

This Research Topic encourages the submission of theoretical and
experimental perspectives to broaden understanding of the importance of the
discrimination of genuine and posed facial expressions of emotion. These
may be new theoretical approaches, those from other disciplines of
psychology not usually utilized within the discrimination of genuine and
staged emotion identification or new theories and designs.

We seek articles that present new hypotheses, concepts, experimental
observations, and theories or models; demonstrate how theories adapted from
other disciplines may be utilized for emotion identification or provide
recommendations to improve current models or theories to enhance their
capacity. We look for papers that may combine critical analysis of current
models, synthesis of early empirical work by single- or multi-modality
analysis (e.g. video, ECG, EEG, fMRI, and single cells in humans and/or
animals), and explore the potential for their development applied to the
context of emotion recognition.

Submissions of systematic reviews and meta-analysis should discuss and
promote comprehensive approaches to update and evolve concepts, hypotheses,
and theories with potential applications in the community.
