Abstract(in English) In order to investigate into discrimination of basic/typical facial expressions and cognitive mechanisms for them in Japanese, facial expressions of 7 emotions of two photo models (1 male, 1 female) were recorded and exposed to 140 students who were asked discriminate them into 11 categories (happy, surprise, fear, anger, disgust, sadness, contempt, interest, shame, guilt, and embarrassment). The results indicated that Japanese people could read emotions from each of basic and typical facial expressions correctly. And the results of factor analysis suggested that Japanese people changed their cognitive mechanism for sadness between when they saw typical Japanese facial expressions and when they saw basic/typical Westerners facial expressions.
