Categorical Representation of Facial Expressions by 7-Month-Old Infants.
Ludemann, Pamela M.; Nelson, Charles A.
Developmental Psychology, v24 n4 p492-501 Jul 1988
Three experiments investigated the ability of seven-month-olds to categorize the facial expressions of happiness, fear, and surprise, which were depicted by degrees of intensity. Happiness could be distinguished in mild and extreme forms, but fear was difficult to discriminate from happiness or surprise. (SKC)
