Emotion Specificity in Mental Retardation.
Rojahn, Johannes; And Others
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v99 n5 p477-86 Mar 1995
The hypothesis that mental retardation is associated with specific deficits in decoding facially expressed emotions was tested with 16 adult subjects with mild to moderate mental retardation and control subjects matched for either chronological or mental age. Experimental subjects were significantly less accurate on the emotion task than both control groups, supporting the emotion-specificity hypothesis. (Author/DB)
