Abstract: Facial expressions of familiar faces have been found to influence identification. In this study, we hypothesize that faces with emotional expression are encoded for both structural and variant information resulting in more robust identification. Eighty-eight participants were presented faces with repetition priming frequencies of 2, 5, 10, and 20 (learning stage) and then judged the faces in terms of familiarity (testing stage). Participants were randomized into one of the following conditions: The facial expression between learning and testing stage remained the same (F-F), faces with facial expression shown in the learning stage were neutralized in the testing stage (F-N), or faces with neutral expressions shown in the learning stage had emotional expressions in the testing stage (N-F). Results confirmed ourhypothesis and implications are discussed. © 2010 Psychology Press.
