Emotions are the essence of what makes us human. They impact our daily routines, our social interactions, our attention, perception, and memory. One of the strongest indicators for emotions is our face. As we laugh or cry we’re putting our emotions on display, allowing others to glimpse into our minds as they "read" our face based on changes in key face features.
Facial expressions refer to movements of the mimetic musculature of the face. The vast majority of these muscles are innervated by the cranial nerve, emanating from the brainstem between the pons and medulla. The nerve includes a motor root that supplies somatic muscle fibers to the muscles of the face, scalp, and outer ear, enabling the muscle movements that comprise facial expressions.
Computer-based facial expression recognition is a challenging task in computer vision as it captures raw, unfiltered emotional responses towards any type of emotionally engaging content.
