Volunteers needed to pose AU13 for new study

Here is a message I am passing on from a student I am advising on new research on AU13: “My name is Jacob Jones and I am an alumni of Erika Rosenberg’s FACS workshop, currently working on my senior thesis at Colorado College. Erika and I are currently collaborating on some research into the social/emotional meaning of AU13. In order to do some of the preliminary studies, we need stimuli photographs. We are seeking volunteers to help provide examples. If you are interested in helping us, all I would need is a photo of you performing (to the best of your ability) two configurations: 6+13 and 6+12, plus a baseline photo of your neutral face. I can promise that the photos will only be used for this study and will not be shared outside of the lab without your permission. It would be such a huge help to me and my research and hopefully it will be fun for you to try to get an AU13 to send to me. I’ve attached a link to photos of Paul Ekman making these faces for reference: https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B0sHS5fTzPW5eDVfYVdUSzVZUlE&usp=sharing 

Please email the photos to facscoloradocollege@gmail.com

Thank you,
