  1. doi Visual search for faces with emotional expressions
    Alexandra Frischen
    Macquarie Centre for Cognitive Science, Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia
    Psychol Bull 134:662-76. 2008
    ..Methodological considerations (e.g., set size, distractor background, task set) and ecological limitations of the visual search task are discussed. Finally, specific recommendations are made for future research directions...

    Daniel Loach
    Macquarie Centre for Cognitive Science, Macquarie University, Sydney, NSW, Australia
    Psychol Sci 19:1253-7. 2008
    ..This finding delineates a common mechanism involved in two of the most important functions of the brain: processing sensory data and preparing actions based on that information...
  5. doi Seeing the world through another person's eyes: simulating selective attention via action observation
    Alexandra Frischen
    Macquarie Centre for Cognitive Science, Macquarie University, NSW, Australia
    Cognition 111:212-8. 2009
    ..This suggests that witnessing another's action leads the observer to simulate the same selective attention mechanisms such that they effectively perceive their surroundings from the other person's perspective...
  6. ncbi Affective evaluations of objects are influenced by observed gaze direction and emotional expression
    Andrew P Bayliss
    School of Psychology, University of Wales, Bangor, UK
    Cognition 104:644-53. 2007
    ..Our results demonstrate that facial expression does modulate the way that observers utilize gaze cues: Objects attended by others are evaluated according to the valence of their facial expression...
  7. ncbi Visual search is not blind to emotion
    Cory Gerritsen
    Department of Psychology, York University, Toronto, Ontario, Canada
    Percept Psychophys 70:1047-59. 2008
    ..However, meta-analytic results indicate that emotional valence makes a relatively small contribution to search efficiency in the present search context...

    Percept Psychophys 69:1105-16. 2007
    ..Furthermore, application of the new restricting viewing method to search for emotionally expressive faces suggested that emotional information is processed preattentively and influences the allocation of focal attention...
