Abstract(in English) Based on the findings of neuroimaging study, we hypothesized that emotional expressions enhance perception of the faces. To test this hypothesis, we investigated psychological performance in perception of a face showing either emotional (positive or negative) or neutral expressions through four experiments, each contained 12-18 subjects. The target face was presented briefly in either left or right visual field and the subject identified it in match-to-sample procedure (Magnussen et al., 1994). The results of a series of experiments demonstrated that perception of the faces with emotional expressions were strikingly accurate as opposed to the faces with neutral expressions. Furthermore, it was revealed that the faces with negative emotion were perceived more accurately than those of positive emotion.
