    J Exp Psychol Learn Mem Cogn 31:1417-32. 2005

    Gustav Kuhn
    Department of Psychology, University of Durham, South Road, Durham, DH1 3LE, UK
    Exp Brain Res 201:155-65. 2010

    Geoff G Cole
    Department of Psychology, University of Durham, UK

    Durham University, Durham, England
    Atten Percept Psychophys 73:1407-21. 2011

    University of Durham, Durham, UK
    Q J Exp Psychol (Hove) 63:147-59. 2010

    Psychon Bull Rev 18:89-95. 2011
    ..However, when searching for a pleasant target, this stronger cueing effect for fearful faces disappeared. Therefore, gaze following is influenced by contextual factors such as the emotional expression, as well as the participant's goal...
