PDF | The Handbook on Facial Expression of Emotion is a compilation of writings from pioneering academic postgraduate course Facial Expression of Emotion. Human Facial Expressions as Adaptations: Evolutionary Questions in Facial Expression Research. KAREN L. SCHMIDT1. AND JEFFREY F. COHN2. Recognizing emotion from facial expressions draws on diverse psychological processes implemented in a large array of neural structures. Studies using evoked.
Understanding facial expressions accurately is one of the challenging tasks for interpersonal relationships. Automatic emotion detection using facial expressions recognition is now a main area of interest within various fields such as computer science, medicine, and psychology. HCI research communities also use automated facial expression recognition system for better results. Various feature extraction techniques have been developed for recognition of expressions from static images as well as real time videos. This paper provides a review of research work carried out and published in the field of facial expression recognition and various techniques used for facial expression recognition. Keywords— automated facial expression recognition system, face detection, emotion detection, and human computer- interaction.
Sample images of their facial expressions were collected from human subjects.
A Facial Action Coding System analysis shows the production of these 21 categories is different but consistent with the subordinate categories they represent e. We show that these differences are sufficient to distinguish between the 21 defined categories. We then use a computational model of face perception to demonstrate that most of these categories are also visually discriminable from one another.
Some men … have the same facial expressions. Physiognomics, unknown author attributed to Aristotle , circa fourth-century B.
Contemporaries of Aristotle studied how to read facial expressions and how to categorize them 2. In a majestic monograph, Duchenne 3 demonstrated which facial muscles are activated when producing commonly observed facial expressions of emotion, including happiness, surprise attention , sadness, anger aggression , fear, and disgust.
Surprisingly, although Plato, Aristotle, Descartes, and Hobbes 1 , 4 , 5 , among others, mentioned other types of facial expressions, subsequent research has mainly focused on the study of the six facial expressions of emotion listed above 6 — 9.
However, any successful theory and computational model of visual perception and emotion ought to explain how all possible facial expressions of emotion are recognized, not just the six listed above. Automatic emotion detection using facial expressions recognition is now a main area of interest within various fields such as computer science, medicine, and psychology.
HCI research communities also use automated facial expression recognition system for better results. Various feature extraction techniques have been developed for recognition of expressions from static images as well as real time videos. This paper provides a review of research work carried out and published in the field of facial expression recognition and various techniques used for facial expression recognition.

These expressions can vary in every individual. Facial expressions are produced by movement of facial features. The facial expression recognition system consists of four steps. First is face detection phase that detects the face from a still image or video.
Second is normalization phase that removes the noise and normalize the face against brightness and pixel position. In third phase features are extracted and irrelevant features are eliminated. In the final step basic expressions are classified into six basic emotions like anger, fear, disgust, sadness, happiness and surprise.
Fig 1. Architecture of facial expression recognition system Facial expressions show the intention, affective state, cognitive activity, psychopathology and personality of a person . In face-to-face interactions facial expressions convey many important communication cues. These cues help the listener to understand the intended meaning of the spoken words. Facial expression recognition also helps in human computer interaction HCI systems .
In some robotic applications facial expressions are also used to detect human emotions . Automatic facial expressions analyses also have applications in behavioral science or medicine  .
The facial expression recognition also has major application in areas like behavioral science, medicine, social interaction and social intelligence.
For automatic facial expression recognition system, representation and categorization of characteristics of facial features deformations is a problem area.
The detailed information about the problem space for features extraction is given in . This paper presents an overview of emotion detection using facial expression recognition, various emotions that can be automatically detected. Thereafter, a review of various recognition techniques some research challenges are also pointed out.
First we perceive the object then response occurs and then emotions appear. For example, when we see a lion or other danger we begin to run and then we fear. Each emotion has its own characteristics and appearance figures. Six basic emotions i. Basic emotions can be distinguished as negative and positive emotions. Happiness is an emotion or mood to attain a goal. It generally used as a synonym of pleasure and excitement. Fear, anger, disgust and sadness are negative emotions and most people do not enjoy them.
Sadness can be described simply as the emotion of losing a goal or social role . It can be described as distraught, disappointed, dejected, blue, depressed, despairing, grieved, helpless, miserable, and sorrowful. Fear is a negative emotion of foreseen danger, psychological or physical harm .
Anger is the most dangerous emotion for everyone.
During this emotion, they hurt other people purposefully. Although anger is commonly described as a negative emotion, some people often report feeling good about their anger but it can have harmful social or physiological consequences, especially when it is not managed . Surprise is neither positive nor negative . Disgust is a feeling of disliking and is the emotion of avoidance of anything that makes one sick .
Disgust usually involves getting rid of and getting-away from responses. For an accurate and high speed emotion detection system edges of the image are detected and by using Euclidean distance Formulae edge distance between various features is calculated.
This edge distance is different for every image and on the basis of these distances emotions are classified . Principal Component Analysis PCA is a technique that reduces the dimensionality of image and provides the effective face indexing and retrieval.
It is also known as the Eigen face approach . Linear projection is used in PCA, which maximize the projected sample scattering . Imaging conditions like lighting and viewpoint should not be varied for better performance. Since all above techniques can be used only for gray scale images therefore there is a requirement for the approaches that can work with color images.
Multilinear Image Analysis uses tensor concept and is introduced to work with different lighting conditions and other distractions. It uses multilinear algebra . Color Subspace Linear Discriminant Analysis also uses tensor concept but can work with color space. A 3-D color tensor is used to produce color LDA subspace which improves the efficiency of recognition .
Gabor Filer Bank is another technique that gives greater performance in terms of recognition rate than other methods . But this method has a major limitation that the maximum bandwidth is limited.
PROBLEMS As we know that we can recognize human emotions using facial expressions without any effort or delay but reliable facial expression recognition by computer interface is still a challenge. An ideal emotion detection system should recognize expressions regardless of gender, age, and any ethnicity.
Such a system should also be invariant to different distraction like glasses, different hair styles, mustache, facial hairs and different lightening conditions. It should also be able to construct a whole face if there are some missing parts of the face due to these distractions.
