Human facial expressions are tied to human emotion. Feelings of fear, surprise, happiness, disgust, sadness, and anger can be understood by researchers recording Facial electromyography (fEMG) data. Activities in the zygomaticus major muscle tend to correspond with positive emotions (happiness, surprise), and the corrigator supercilii muscle tends to correspond with negative emotions (anger, fear, disgust). Researchers use this EMG data for a variety of studies involving visual, auditory and haptic stimuli, startle and response, unconscious learning, emotional response and more.
Join Frazer Findlay, CEO, BIOPAC for a webinar on recording great Facial EMG. Learn how to set up a Facial EMG study, where to place the electrodes and best practices for recording signals on the muscles tied to our emotions.

Recent Studies using BIOPACs MP-Series (MP160, MP150) data recorders, ECG Amplifiers, and BioNomadix Wireless recorders: Singing style to infants Mothers around the world sing to infants, presumably to regulate their mood and arousal. Lullabies and playsongs differ stylistically and have distinctive goals. Mothers sing lullabies to soothe and calm infants, and playsongs to engage and […]
