身段表情背景注意认知任务Body Expression Scene Attention Cognitive Task



Body expression is a relatively novel topic. Similar to facial expression, body expression is not likely to be an isolated object. Previous studies have shown that voice, linguistic label, scene or other body posture all influence emotion perception. Using compound stimuli of body and scene, we investigated how the scenes influence the processing of body expression in different cognitive tasks. The result showed that, recognition performance of scene was higher in affective judgment than that in emotion categorization; recognition performance of emotional scene was higher than that of neutral scene regardless of task type; recognition performance of body expression was lower in affective judgment than that in emotion categorization. This may suggest that different cognitive tasks influence attention pattern.
