Ansiktsuttrycket säger mer än ord. Är emotionell smitta via ansiktsuttryck det första steget mot empati

Sonnby-Borgström, Marianne LU (2002) In Läkartidningen 99(13). p.1438-1442
Abstract
The hypotheses were based on conceiving of automatic mimicking as involved in emotional empathy. Mimicry reactions (EMG) in high- and low-empathy subjects were studied when subjects were exposed to pictures of angry or happy faces. The degree of correspondence between subjects’ facial EMG reactions and their self-reported feelings was compared. The comparisons were made at different stimulus exposure times in order to elicit reactions at different levels of information processing. The high-empathy subjects were found to have a higher degree of mimicking behavior than the low-empathy subjects at short exposure times (17 – 40 milliseconds) and they showed a higher correspondence between facial expressions and self-reported feelings.
