Abstract:

This study investigates how individual differences in age and motivated cognition influence the processing of emotional faces. Few studies have investigated how emotion is processed in faces. And, no study that we are aware of to date in the field of communication has addressed how the emotional facial expressions of media cartoon characters are processed by children. Here we present results from a study that investigated emotional responses in children from the ages of 11-17 while they viewed pictures of the faces of human and animal cartoon characters. Results show that children do respond emotionally to emotional faces and that these responses are faster and more like adult responses for older children. In addition, emotional responses differ as a function of whether the cartoon characters are animals or humans. Responses to human faces are more predictable and faster. Responses to animal faces suggest that children have some difficulty recognizing emotion in animated animal faces ad that this difficulty is reduced with age. In addition, there is evidence that neutral animal faces receive more processing than either positive or negative animal faces.
