American Journal on Mental Retardation, v104 n3 p270-78 May 1999
Adults (N=24) with and without mental retardation were shown moving and static videotaped and photographic displays of posed emotional expressions. Individuals with mental retardation were significantly poorer at identifying anger, fear, disgust, and surprise. Both groups performed significantly better on the moving as opposed to the static videotaped displays of the emotions "sad" and "angry." (Author/DB)
