New article: Functionally distinct smiles elicit different physiological responses in an evaluative context
Jared Martin is the first author on the latest paper from our lab, published in Nature Scientific Reports. In it we show that dominance smiles do not buffer stress responses in an evaluative context in the same way that reward smiles do. This is the first work to demonstrate smiles of reward, affiliation, and dominance do not all have the same effect on the recipient's physiology.
