Michal Olszanowski & Grzegorz Pochwatko: WSEFEP - Warsaw Set of Emotional Facial Expression Pictures by emotional-face.org
The project was established by the team from Warsaw School of Social Sciences and Humanities to research facial emotionality. Now, as a first result of our work, we created the set of 210 high-quality pictures of six basic emotions (enjoyment, fear, disgust, anger, sadness, surprise) and neutral display. The pictures were carefully selected to fit criteria of basic emotions and then evaluated by independent judges. Each one has own indices of intensity and purity of displayed emotions.If you are academic teacher or researcher and you want to use the set all you have to do is to make on-line registration – then you will be able to download database (during the registration please add ‘EAESP' as an ‘affiliate institution’ for faster proceeding!).WSEFEP is free for scientific/academic use (non-commercial researches or for educational purpose). For more information please visit www.emotional-face.org.
Radboud Faces Database (RaFD)
RaFD is a freely available face database for scientific purposes and contains high quality photographs of 39 Caucasian adults, 19 Caucasian children, and 19 Moroccan adult males (i.e., Dutch males from Moroccan descent).
The database contains images of each of these 67 faces with 8 facial expressions (neutral, angry, sad, fearful, happy, surprised, contemptuous, disgusted), each with three gaze directions (straight, averted left, averted right). All pictures were taken from 5 camera angles simultaneously.
Recently, we published validation data for the frontal camera images of all Caucasian models, with measurements on: emotion recognition, intensity of emotion, clarity of emotion, genuineness of emotion, and valence of the pictures [see: Langner, Dotsch, Bijlstra, Wigboldus, Hawk, & van Knippenberg (in press). Presentation and validation of the Radboud Faces Database. Cognition and Emotion.].
As staff member of an accredited university you can download and use images from RaFD for non-profit scientific research without any costs. Visit our website at: www.rafd.nl and request access to the database.
We hope to be able to offer you the iPhone/Android app of the year. We have developed an iPhone and Android app that we hope you can use to support in your teaching of social psychology students. The app offers a statement on social psychological research every day, with elaborate explanations (and the references!) the day after and feedback on whether the person was correct or not. The statements that have been developed by a team consisting of Daniel Sude, Justin Saddlemyer, Justin Cheng, Ellie Shockley, Kasey van Tyne, Laura Finch, and Hans IJzerman. People using the app can compete with one another in their own groups (such as a class) and compare how well they have done.
We tried to keep the app as cheap as possible (99 cents for iPhone and free for Android). Please note that In-Mind Foundation is a non-profit foundation and the income generated will mostly go to the development of the app and to further supporting our website. Though the app provides brief and simplified statements, it is really meant to get students interested in learning more about all the complexities of human behavior. Part of this we hope will be accomplished by the explanations provided. We further hope that the app may motivate your students (even) more in your classes. Below you will find the description of the app.
You can download the app here:
Best wishes and enjoy playing!
The app according to the experts:
John Cacioppo, the Tiffany and Margaret Blake Distinguished Service Professor at the University of Chicago and founder of the field of social neuroscience: “Think you know people? Think again. This fun and educational app provides provides new insights into how people think and why they (and you) act as they do.”
Harry Reis, former president of the Society for Personality and Social Psychology and professor at the University of Rochester: “What a great way to have fun and learn something, too.”
What do YOU know about people? Do you think that you know the human psyche? And, do you know the human psyche better than your friends?
Here's the app that will put your mind to the test. Social K assesses your knowledge about human behavior and teaches you facts that you may have never known!
New scientific findings, classical theories - brought to you in an accessible way: Every day, you receive a claim about how humans act, feel, and think. We ask you: Is it true? The next day we'll tell you whether you were correct and you will also know how you compare to others.
Social Knowledge is the first app of its kind and tests your understanding of scientific findings in the most fun way. You can even use it as a teaching aid!
The content of Social K was developed by the In-Mind Foundation, an organization run by scientists devoted to provide edutainment on social psychology, bringing science to you in the most fun way. The scientists work at prestigious universities worldwide, distilling scientific findings for you. Humans are innately social - and ALL feelings, behaviors, and thoughts are inherently influenced by their social context. Now you get to know how.
* Plain and simple: A daily claim on human social behavior
* Develop your personal knowledge regarding social behavior
* No self-help books for you. Learn how humans behave
* Compare your knowledge against people worldwide
* Compare your knowledge against your friends/classroom
* Pride yourself by showing your knowledge on Twitter
* Transform your iPhone into your own psychology professor
