State anxiety and emotional face recognition in healthy volunteers (study three - online task)



An online observational study investigating the association between state/trait anxiety and emotional face recognition. Healthy adults (n = 2006) completed a six alternated forced choice task in which they were presented with basic emotional expressions (anger, disgust, fear, happiness, sadness and surprise) and were required to identify the emotion present in the face. Outcome measures were recognition accuracy and unbiased hit rate (i.e., sensitivity).
