Emotion Categories in Language and Thought
Emotion has been a core domain for investigating the relative roles of biology and culture in human cognition. The goal is to investigate cross-cultural emotional categories in language and thought. This entry consists of three core tasks: (i) naming emotions from facial expressions; (ii) naming emotions from scenarios, and (ii) matching scenarios to facial expressions.
To conduct this task you need (i) a set of Ekman faces and optionally (ii) video stimuli called Mind Reading Emotions Library.
