Abstract Facial expressions are described traditionally as monolithic or unitary entities. However, humans have the capacity to produce facial blends of emotion in which the upper and lower face simultaneously display different expressions. Recent neuroanatomical studies in monkeys have demonstrated that there are separate cortical motor areas for controlling the upper and lower face in each hemisphere that, presumably, also occur in humans. Using high-speed videography, we began measuring the m...

The self-conscious emotions according to the theory presented here require two important features which develop in the first 3 years of life. These are consciousness, defined here as self-awareness as measured by self-recognition in mirrors, the onset of personal pronouns like “me” or “mine,” and complex pretend play. These emerge between 15 and 24 months of age and give rise to self-conscious-exposed emotions such as embarrassment, envy, and empathy, as well as prosocial behaviors such as shari...
This paper investigates an ecosystem as a possible source of loyalty increase. With the case of the Valley of the Monkeys in France, the only European park welcoming monkeys in total freedom, this research statistically explores emotional determinants of loyalty, satisfaction and word-of-mouth behaviour from single to family visitors in order to identify which marketing angles the park should highlight to reach a sustainable development logic. After anchoring our research in the tourism paradigm...

Abstract Depending on a subject’s attentional bias, robust changes in emotional perception occur when facial blends (different emotions expressed on upper/lower face) are presented tachistoscopically. If no instructions are given, subjects overwhelmingly identify the lower facial expression when blends are presented to either visual field. If asked to attend to the upper face, subjects overwhelmingly identify the upper facial expression in the left visual field but remain slightly biased to the ...

ABSTRACTBackground We investigated attachment behaviours of children with Down syndrome (DS) toward their preschool teacher and examined whether children's emotional expressivity predicted the incidence of attachment behaviours. We hypothesised that children with DS will show a low level of secure attachment to their teacher and that emotional competence will be associated with secure attachment.Method Forty-one children with DS (21 males, 20 females, M mental age = 34.6 months, SD = 11.9) were ...

Although scholars in music education acknowledge the speciality and legitimacy of jazz education, they do not provide the philosophical bases to justify its "special" status or guide its organization and conduct. Instead, they append brief endorsements1 to a false assumption: that the philosophy of music education as aesthetic education will suffice to explain the nature and value of jazz and jazz education. Unfortunately, this philosophy rests upon a one-dimensional theory of musical structure ...

Little is known about child-based effects on parents’ anxiety symptoms early in life despite the possibility that child characteristics may contribute to the quality of the early environment and children’s own long-term risk for psychological disorder. We examined bidirectional effects between parent anxiety symptoms and infant fear-based negative affect using a prospective adoption design. Infant fear-based negative affect and adoptive parent anxiety symptoms were assessed at child ages 9, 18, ...

A core goal of inclusive education worldwide is to maximize the learning potential of students with special educational needs (SEN) in mainstream educational settings. However, little research attention has been paid to SEN children’s social and emotional gains from inclusive education compared to their academic performance. This study included social, emotional, and academic variables in a single research design, not only to test their relationships but also to explore the predictive roles of s...

O retraimento social tem sido uma problematica para os investigadores nos ultimos anos, pelas suas controversias no desenvolvimento emocional dos sujeitos. Todavia, em Portugal averigua-se a existencia de poucos estudos na area em relacao a criancas de idade pre-escolar. Assim, procurou-se verificar a relacao entre o conhecimento emocional e o retraimento social na primeira infância, junto de uma amostra de 227 criancas portuguesas (123 do sexo feminino) com idades entre os 36 e os 71 meses. A p...
