As humans we are highly skilled in decoding facial expressions. The skill we demonstrate suggests that the process has an evolutionary function which would be explained by our need to use facial expressions to identify emotional states in others for successful functioning in a complex social environment. The assessment is computer-delivered and initially intended for use with young children aged 4 to 6 years.
Carroll E. Izard, Unidel Professor. Izard, Unidel Professor "This book is a must for students of human facial expression.
Emotion expressions are measured by Izard's facial movement coding and affect identification systems Max and Affexcognitive capacities by measures adapted from Kagan and Uzgiris and Huntinfant temperament by Rothbart's Infant Behavior Questionnaire, Mothers Personality by Jackson Personality Research Form, Quality of Attachment by Ainsworth's system and later competence by methods developed by Block and Block, Sroufe, and others. The proposed research will attempt to reaffirm and extend our previous findings on the stability and significance of early emotion expression variables. Evidence for the effectiveness of infant emotion variables in predicting later competence will have significant implications for the early detection and prevention of mental health problems.
Many contemporary psychology textbooks Gleitman, ; Myers, describe facial expressions of emotions as universal, citing famous studies by both Ekman and Izard and their colleagues Ekman,; Ekman et al. In these studies, respondents from different cultures were asked to identify a number of facial expressions. In the initial studies, respondents selected one emotion from a list.

In the last post we looked at the eight Rasas and how they are related to the eight color terms and the eight basic emotions. Another list of basic emotions follows from the work of Carroll Izard ; Izard is interested in the infants facial expressions and believes that due to lack of socialization etc there is perfect concordance between the infants facial expressions and infants emotional states.

In addition, Izard constructed a multidimensional self-report measure — the Differential Emotions Scale — currently in its 4th edition DES-IV   His later research focused on emotional development in young children and the development and testing of his Emotions Course for Young Children. Izard earned his PhD from Syracuse University in and served initially as a psychology professor at Vanderbilt Universitywhere he carried out pioneering research into human emotions. Inhe joined the Department of Psychology at the University of Delaware where he remained active as Unidel Professor of Psychology in the McKinly Lab until his retirement in
