Reassessing Emotion Recognition Performance in People with Mental Retardation: A Review.
Moore, Derek G.
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v106 n6 p481-502 Nov 2001
This paper reviews the evidence for problems on emotion-recognition tasks by people with mental retardation. It finds a lack of evidence for the specificity of these performance deficits and suggests that previous findings resulted from IQ-related deficits in memory and attention, in imagination, and in dealing with static or ambiguous stimuli. Research methodology recommendations are made. (Contains references.) (DB)
