McAlpine, Christopher; And Others
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v96 n1 p29-36 Jul 1991
This study of 501 children and adults found that subjects with mental retardation or borderline intelligence were less proficient at identifying facial expressions of emotion than were children of average intelligence. Among individuals with mental retardation or borderline intelligence, recognition increased with intelligence quotient. Among average-intelligence individuals, recognition increased with age.
