Effects of Early Experience on Children's Recognition of Facial Displays of Emotion.
Pollak, Seth D.; Sinha, Pawan
Developmental Psychology, v38 n5 p784-91 Sep 2002
Examined visual perception of emotion in typically developing and physically abused children, focusing on the sequential, content-based properties of feature detection in emotion recognition processes. Found that physically abused children accurately identified facial displays of anger on the basis of less sensory input than did typically developing children, suggesting that physically abused children have facilitated access to representations of anger.
