The Facial Feedback Hypothesis
In this report I would like to report about the exercise I have performed in week-3 session which test the 'facial feedback hypothesis'. And this hypothesis is an extension of James-Lange theory, which states that the physiological change that we experience in response to a stimulus or an event are in fact our emotions. The facial feedback hypothesis proposes that the emotions we experience are also influenced by sensory feed back from the face. In my experiment, our class use the method described by Strack, Martin and Stepper (1988) to prevent participants from interpreting their facial expressions as emotions. We were asked to put the pen in different conditions: 'teeth-holding', 'lip-balancing' and 'teeth-holding without lip assist'. There were 346 students chosen at Monash University 2nd year psychology department. They were asked to do a simple task which is manipulate the pen by the mouth and lips, and it's real meaning is smiling, neutral and frowning; but not allow them to aware the actual meaning for the task., however the statistic shows that the hypothesis was not accepted, and the data was insignificant compare with the past finding.
