You Mad Bro??

Effects of Early Experience on Children’s Recognition of Facial Displays: (non-nerd: ‘the ‘u mad bro’ test)

Study: determine the affects that physical abuse had on children so they took a group of 9 yr old’s (half of which had a history of physical abuse) and showed them computerized images of a face morphing gradually from sadness or fear to anger.

Results: children who had been abused detected anger in emotionally ambiguous faces far more often than the other children

So What: these results speak to two things: 1. the effects early childhood experiences have on emotional development & 2. the difficulties an abused child would have when relating to others as they more frequently perceiving anger on the faces around them
