Evidence from multiple methods and multiple informants revealed that these caregivers and their children live under considerable chronic stress. They suffer the ill fortunes of poverty and relatively frequent negative life events that might be expected to bring frequent shifts in the quality of emotion experiences. Nevertheless, the stability of emotion feelings in this group proved to be comparable to that in the white middle-class sample. Dougherty and Riggins (1995) also used the DBS in a cross-sectional study of what they termed the middle-aged (50-64), young-old (65-74), EMOTIONS AND SELF-CONCEPTS 19 and old-old (75-89).
EMG activity over the zygomaticus major region was highest during happy imagery, but was also elevated during fear imagery, and, to a lesser extent, during anger imagery. Whether these latter elevations reflect some subjects engaging in miserable or distress smiling (Ekman, Friesen, & Ancoli, 1980), to cross-talk from other muscles of the middle and lower facial regions, or to the putative phylogenetic origin of smiling and laughter in primitive agonistic displays (Andrew, 1963; van Hooff, 1972) is unclear.
Nevertheless, relatively low levels of EMG activity over the corrugator supercilii muscle region marked feelings of merriment and warmheartedness, whereas relatively high levels of EMG activity over this region marked feelings of fear, sadness, disgust, tension, irritation, and contempt. That is, increased EMG activity over the corrugator supercilii muscle region was associated with lower reports of positive emotions and higher reports of negative emotions. Further differentiation based on facial EMG activity over this region was not reliable, consistent with the extant research linking EMG activity over the corrugator supercilii muscle region to various negative affective reactions rather than to a specific negative emotion.
