Facial Emotional Expressions of Adults with Mental Retardation.
Wilczenski, Felicia L.
Education and Training in Mental Retardation, v26 n3 p319-24 Sep 1991
Photographs of facial emotional expressions posed by adults classified as mentally retarded were judged by familiar and unfamiliar adults who were not mentally retarded. Happiness and sadness were accurately posed most often. The ability to encode facial emotional expressions was correlated with assessments of interpersonal competence provided by work supervisors.
