Understanding the perception of face-to-face interaction through the lens of Event Cognition 

In real life, people experience face-to-face interaction as continuous temporal events unfolding over time. The focus of this research is on the temporal aspects of facial emotion perception and the way in which they interact with each other. Using the event cognition perspective, we seek to understand how dynamic interactions can be broken down into "informational units" that account for the perception process. Our previous work has shown that the segmentation of facial events follows fundamental principles found in event cognition studies. We continue investigating how event segmentation shapes the judgment component of the perception process.
