Event: Here’s Looking At You

January 12, 2008

Think we learn how to make facial expressions as we grow up? Think again, says Paul Ekman, a UCSF psychology professor emeritus and Greater Good editorial board member. Ekman has spent 40 years studying human emotions and photographing facial expressions of the South Fore people of New Guinea, and his research shows many facial expressions are universal across cultures. The American Psychological Association named Ekman one of the most influential psychologists of the 20th century, and his work has shed new light on human evolutionary history. This month, the Exploratorium will honor his work with a lecture and photo exhibition.
