Research Topic: "Anxiety and the Perception of Facial Expressions"

Abstract: Previous research involving face perception indicates that there are special mechanisms for coding faces in our brain.  This research project examined the level of trait anxiety of the participants and their classification of anger and fearful facial expressions. It is predicted that when confronted with an ambiguous face composed of two emotions (angry/happy or fear/happy) the more anxious the participant is, the more that he/she will judge an ambiguous face differently to a low-anxiety participant.
