Human Smiles: Expression of Emotion or Communication Gesture?
Unformatted Document Text:  Kurylo & Frank Smiles and Communication 12 Participants. The participants of this study were 51 female and 24 male first year psychology students from the University of New South Wales who participated in the study for course credit. Participants ranged in age from 18 to 41 with 18 as the median age. Ultimately, after the experiment was completed and participants scored with FACS, eight participants were eliminated from the study because their facial movements were occluded in the video recording. Therefore, the final sample of participants was 44 females and 23 males. The recruitment procedure used in this study is identical to that used by Fridlund (1991). Participants were randomly chosen to either bring a friend (2/3rds of sample) or come to the experiment alone (1/3). The 22 participants in the alone condition were asked to come alone and viewed the videotape alone. Of the 45 remaining participants who were asked to bring a friend to the experiment session, 22 were randomly assigned to the moderate social contact condition, and 23 were assigned to the high social contact condition. The participants who viewed the videotape in the room down the hall (moderate social contact condition) actually participated in a separate questionnaire study during the same time period in which the first participant watched the videotape. Likewise when the second participant was watching the videotape, the first participant participated in the other study. The total time for participation was approximately 30 minutes. The 23 participants who were assigned to the high social contact condition were seated next to each other and viewed the videotape together. They were instructed to refrain from communicating with each other while the videotape was being played.

Participants.
The participants of this study were 51 female and 24 male first year psychology
students from the University of New South Wales who participated in the study for
course credit. Participants ranged in age from 18 to 41 with 18 as the median age.
Ultimately, after the experiment was completed and participants scored with FACS, eight
participants were eliminated from the study because their facial movements were
occluded in the video recording. Therefore, the final sample of participants was 44
females and 23 males. The recruitment procedure used in this study is identical to that
used by Fridlund (1991). Participants were randomly chosen to either bring a friend
(2/3rds of sample) or come to the experiment alone (1/3). The 22 participants in the alone
condition were asked to come alone and viewed the videotape alone.
Of the 45 remaining participants who were asked to bring a friend to the
experiment session, 22 were randomly assigned to the moderate social contact condition,
and 23 were assigned to the high social contact condition. The participants who viewed
the videotape in the room down the hall (moderate social contact condition) actually
participated in a separate questionnaire study during the same time period in which the
first participant watched the videotape. Likewise when the second participant was
watching the videotape, the first participant participated in the other study. The total time
for participation was approximately 30 minutes. The 23 participants who were assigned
to the high social contact condition were seated next to each other and viewed the
videotape together. They were instructed to refrain from communicating with each other
while the videotape was being played.
