Lectura de la Expresión Facial de las Emociones: Investigación básica en la mejora del reconocimiento de emociones

Ansiedad y Estres 10/2013; 19(2-3):121-129.

ABSTRACT

In this article we review two important discoveries of psychology of emotion: the universality of facial expressions of emotion and the existence of microexpressions and how they have been used as a basis for the development of training and improving recognition ability programs. We discuss the most important aspects of their application to the real world in various professional and personal spheres. Finally we conclude that, despite the low rate of accuracy in recognizing microexpressions by the majority of the people, there are tools to develop the ability to recognize facial emotion expression.

    ABSTRACT: El uso de métodos, técnicas y herramientas de las neurociencias se está generalizando durante las últimas décadas y el prefijo “neuro” abarca distintas disciplinas, entre ellas, las ciencias sociales y la comunicación, como consecuencia del entendimiento de que la salud y la medicina son socialmente construidas. Metodología: Este artículo analiza el impacto provocado por la audición de versiones en distintas lenguas del himno oficial de Ecuador, entre un grupo de estudiantes ecuatorianos, a través del registro de las alteraciones físicas (estudio de Variabilidad de la Frecuencia Cardíaca, VFC) y emocionales (programa de reconocimiento facial de emociones) de los participantes.

    ABSTRACT: Introduction: The use of neuroscience methods, tools and techniques has become widespread in recent decades, and the prefix “neuro-” is now applied to disciplines such as the social sciences and communication as a consequence of the understanding that health and medicine are socially constructed. Method: This article analyses the impact of listening to Ecuador’s national anthem sung in different languages on a group of Ecuadorian university students based on the analysis of the physical and emotional changes (heart rate and facial expression, respectively) these students experience while listening to the different versions of the anthem. Results and conclusions: The heart rate variability results are not statistically significant and there are only minor differences in the perception of the anthem across gender groups. The analysis of facial expressions revealed an evolutionary sequential emotional pattern that involves “surprise and joy”, that is to say, a feeling of satisfaction.
