It's interesting how it looks so similar to so many other systems that we have.

Facial expressions of emotion are not culturally universal

Facial expressions of emotion are not culturally universal | Social Neuroscience | Scoop.it

Since Darwin’s seminal works, the universality of facial expressions of emotion has remained one of the longest standing debates in the biological and social sciences. Briefly stated, the universality hypothesis claims that all humans communicate six basic internal emotional states (happy, surprise, fear, disgust, anger, and sad) using the same facial movements by virtue of their biological and evolutionary origins [Susskind JM, et al. (2008) Nat Neurosci 11:843–850]. Here, we refute this assumed universality. Using a unique computer graphics platform that combines generative grammars [Chomsky N (1965) MIT Press, Cambridge, MA] with visual perception, we accessed the mind’s eye of 30 Western and Eastern culture individuals and reconstructed their mental representations of the six basic facial expressions of emotion.

 

Cross-cultural comparisons of the mental representations challenge universality on two separate counts. First, whereas Westerners represent each of the six basic emotions with a distinct set of facial movements common to the group, Easterners do not. Second, Easterners represent emotional intensity with distinctive dynamic eye activity. By refuting the long-standing universality hypothesis, our data highlight the powerful influence of culture on shaping basic behaviors once considered biologically hardwired. Consequently, our data open a unique nature–nurture debate across broad fields from evolutionary psychology and social neuroscience to social networking via digital avatars.

Interesting.... Hypnosis is receiving some new respect from neuroscientists as brain scans show how a suggestion can change the mechanism of perception.

Mind Management: Researchers Explore New Ways to Influence Minds | Social Neuroscience | Scoop.it

The Pentagon’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) wants to understand the science behind what makes people violent, and then find ways to hijack their minds by implanting false, but believable stories in their brains, with hopes of evoking peaceful thoughts: We’re friends, not enemies.

The Social Brain and Empathy

The experience of empathy is a powerful interpersonal phenomenon and a necessary means of everyday social communication. It facilitates parental care of offspring. It enables us to live in groups and socialize. It paves the way for the development of moral reasoning and motivates prosocial behavior. Empathy is an essential cornerstone of the patient-doctor relationship. It is associated with better outcomes and fewer malpractice claims. For a very long time, empathy has been a focus of speculation in philosophy. But in the past decade, empathy research has blossomed into a vibrant and multidisciplinary field of study, which includes developmental psychology, evolutionary biology, social psychology, and affective social neuroscience
