Following emotion embodiment theories, the facial feedback hypothesis suggests that an individual’s facial expressions can influence their emotions (e.g., that posing a smile can cause one to feel happier). In the 100+ years since the facial feedback hypothesis was first proposed (e.g., James, 1884), facial feedback effects have become a literal textbook psychological phenomenon. However, in 2016, a large failure-to-replicate raised concerns about the validity of facial feedback effects and their underlying theories (Wagenmakers et al., 2016). Since this failure-to-replicate, many researchers have characterized facial feedback effects as inconclusively supported, controversial, or even debunked. In this talk, Dr. Nicholas Coles reviews research designed to examine the extent to which such conclusions are warranted.
