Abstract

The authors suggest that it is natural and appropriate for fields tofocus on particular phenomena and approaches. For affect, thefocus has been on the subset of phenomena calledemotion, with emphasis on facial expression,physiological responses, and appraisal. However, theauthors note that there is a cost to the focus. The focus on facialexpression has caused researchers to ignore those signals, such asthose including touch, which involve an interaction amongconspecifics. The focus on “internal” accounts of emotionhas resulted in relative inattention to the criticaladaptive–communication function of displays.P. Rozin and A. B. Cohen (2003) believe that the frequencyof confusion and concentration expressions indicates that it is important toinform conspecifics of one's receptiveness to new information or furtherinteractions.
