Culture and Emotions
Emotions are undisputedly multifaceted and derived from an interaction of biological and environmental socializing influences. To date in the study of emotions among children, much effort has been expanded in measurement issues and tracing the measurement of facial expression across the opening months and years of life. In general, the guiding principle of this task has been the assumption of a strong biological model that posits a fixed and universal connection between emotional expression—in particular, facial expression—and emotion. Following Darwin, many have focused on infant facial expression and on the connection between stimuli and emotions as expressed in the face and the voice.
