The fEMG activity was measured following the guidelines by Fridlund and Cacioppo (1986).
The fEMG, EEG, and EOG electrodes were then attached to the participants, and they were told to avoid excessive eye blinking during word presentation and avoid head or body movements.
All fEMG signals were first high-pass filtered (60 Hz) to reduce movement and blinking-related artifact, and then integrated using Acknowledge 4.2 offline.
To determine whether the premier expression correlated with the preceding emotional processing, cross-correlation analyses between the ERP grand mean waves over all epochs and average fEMG activity in the corrugator supercilii muscle were conducted for unpleasant stimuli from the start of stimuli presentation to 1000 ms after its onset.
fEMG was recorded at three separate sites: the muscle regions Corrugator Supercilii (CS, above the brow, indexes negative emotion), Zygomaticus Major (ZM, on the cheek, indexes positive emotion) and Orbicularis Oculi (OO, below the eye, indexes sincere positive emotion).
The resultant signal for each fEMG electrode location was an IV--that is, fEMG 1 = Zygomaticus major, fEMG 2 = Corrugator Supercilii, fEMG 3 = Orbicularis Oculi.
The full list of IVs included: EDAP, EDAT, HR, HRV, fEMG Zygomaticus, fEMG Orbicularis Oculi, fEMG Corrugator Supercilii.
Both fEMG Zygomaticus and fEMG Orbicularis are indices of positive emotion, as explained above.
The fEMG activity was measured according to the guidelines from Fridlund and Cacioppo (1986).
The fEMG, EEG, and EOG electrodes were then attached to the participants, and they were told to avoid excessive eye blinking during the picture presentation, and to avoid head or body movements.
All fEMG signals were first high-pass filtered (60 Hz) and then integrated using Acknowledge 4.2 offline.
Overall, fEMG responses for the corrugator supercilii muscle were available for 51 participants (14 males, 37females), of which 24 were in the control condition and 27 were in the suppression condition.
