Abstract:
This literature review focuses on the research relating to facial expressions of emotion, first addressing the question of what they are and what role they play, before going on to review the mechanisms by which they are recognised in others. It then considers the psychiatric and drug-using populations in which the ability to recognise facial expressions is compromised, and how this corresponds to the social behaviour that characterises these groups. Finally, this review will focus on one particular population, opiate users. The relevance of studying this population will be discussed and the evidence relating to recognition of facial expressions in this group will be presented.
