Recognition of Facial Emotions in
Neuropsychiatric Disorders

The second article in The April 2004 issue of CNS Spectrums is titled Recognition of Facial Emotions in Neuropsychiatric Disorders.  It was written by Christian G. Kohler, MD, Travis H. Turner, BS, Raquel E. Gur, MD, PhD, and Ruben C. Gur, PhD.  Most of them are from the University of Pennsylvania.  I'm not sure why this article is in with the others, since it is not really about neuroimaging.  The abstract is here:

Recognition of facial emotions represents an important
aspect of interpersonal communication and is governed
by select neural substrates. We present data on emotion
recognition in healthy young adults utilizing a novel set
of color photographs of evoked universal emotions.
In addition, we review the recent literature on emotion
recognition in psychiatric and neurologic disorders, and
studies that compare different disorders.
