Abstract(in Japanese) (See Japanese page)
Abstract(in English) Three experiments examined facial responses elicited by taste stimulation(sweet, salty, sour, and bitter)and the recognition of the facial responses. In Experiment 1, solution of each taste was injected into the subjects' mouths and their facial responses were recorded. The pictures or movies of the facial responses were presented to the subjects who were required to identify the taste stimuli on the confidence rating scale(Experiment 2)and to rate emotional tone of the facial expressions(Experiment 3). The results of the experiments showed that the facial expression of sourness and bitterness were conspicuous and identified correctly and that the motion cue of face was not utilized to identify facial expressions. These findings were discussed in terms of the communicative meanings of the facial expressions to the tastes.
