The test differed from previous methods in that there were no emotional states to emulate, dissimulate or exaggerate. This finding shows that facial muscle paralysis has a selective effect on processing of emotional content. The strong version implies that facial feedback by itself can create the whole emotion.
Botox selectively blocks muscle feedback by blocking presynaptic acetylcholine receptors at the neuromuscular junction. Discuss how it might be used to regulate ongoing expression. Methodological issues[ edit ] Originally, the facial feedback hypothesis studied the enhancing or suppressing effect of facial efference on emotion in the context of spontaneous, "real" emotions, using stimuli.
It has been suggested that more effort may be involved in holding a pen with the lips compared with the teeth. Thomas McCanne and Judith Anderson  instructed participants to suppress or increase the zygomatic or corrugator muscle while imagining pleasant or unpleasant scenes.
Finally, the presence of physiological change may have been induced or modified by cognitive process. The event-appraisal-emotion sequence begins with the occurrence of an emotion-inducing stimulus and ends with the unfolding of the various components of emotion Deckers, In The Principles of Psychology, James wrote: The last task, which was the real objective of the test, was the subjective rating of the funniness of a cartoon.
However, in all research, difficulty remained in how to measure an effect without alerting the participant to the nature of the study and how to ensure that the connection between facial activity and corresponding emotion is not implicit in the procedure. According to Jeffrey Browndyke,  "the strongest evidence for the facial feedback hypothesis to date comes from research by Lanzetta et al.
Development of the theory[ edit ] While James included the influence of all bodily changes on the creation of an emotion, "including among them visceral, muscular, and cutaneous effects", : Subsequent alteration of the emotional response was shown to have occurred.
Reading times for angry and sad sentences were longer after botox injection than before injection, while reading times for happy sentences were unchanged.
Further studies have used experimental control to test the hypothesis that botox affects aspects of emotional processing. As predicted, participants in the Teeth condition reported significantly higher amusement ratings than those in the Lips condition.
In a study of cognitive processing of emotional content, David Havas and colleagues  asked participants to read emotional angry, sad, happy sentences before and two weeks after botox injections in the corrugator supercilii muscle used in frowning.
There are four common assumptions derived by Roseman and Smith as related to the appraisal of emotion-inducing events. Several studies have examined the correlation of botox injections and emotion   and these suggest that the toxin could be used as a treatment for depression.
It also demonstrates that cosmetic use of botox affects aspects of human cognition - namely, the understanding of language.
These findings show that facial feedback modulates neural processing of emotional content, and that botox changes how the human brain responds to emotional situations. Then the pre-aware appraisal determines the positive and negative valence of the stimulus.
Thus, while motor efference commands to the facial muscles remain intact, sensory afference from extrafusal muscle fibersand possibly intrafusal muscle fibersis diminished. Smeets  has shown that the facial feedback hypothesis does not hold for people with autism spectrum disorders ASD ; that is, "individuals with ASD do not experience feedback from activated facial expressions as controls do".
Recently, strong experimental support for a facial feedback mechanism is provided through the use of botulinum toxin commonly known as Botox to temporarily paralyze facial muscles.
On the other hand, the repression, as far as this is possible, of all outward signs softens our emotions It has been suggested that the treatment of nasal muscles would reduce the ability of the person to form a disgust response which could offer a reduction of symptoms associated with obsessive compulsive disorder.
Even the simulation of an emotion tends to arouse it in our minds. The control group would hold the pen in their nondominant hand. During imitation of angry facial expressions, botox decreased activation of brain regions implicated in emotional processing and emotional experience namely, the amygdala and the brainstemrelative to activations before botox injection.
First, emotion-inducing situations create stimulus for emotion.
The free expression by outward signs of an emotion intensifies it. Emotion also unfolds in an forms of behavior, affect, expression, and physiological response Deckers, Biological, psychological, and environmental 3rd ed.The paper will be wrapped up by discussing facial feedback hypothesis, particularly the event-appraisal-emotion sequence.
Hopefully this paper explains how these approaches to emotion and motivations affect not only how people react to the world but also how the world directly affects their levels of arousal and motivation.
