Grounding the meaning of non-prototypical smiles on motor behavior Academic Article uri icon


  • We address how the motor system can contribute to the meaning component of smile perception. A smile perceiver can ground the meaning of non-prototypical smiles by interacting with the presenter to maintain the presenter's type of smile. In this case, the meaning of that smile is congruent with the motor behavior that elicits that smile (such as a funny gesture). © 2010 Cambridge University Press.
