That’s a Real Smile!...or is it?
-25 subjects ranging in age from 14-51
-A computer with internet connection
-Pen and paper to record results
The photo on the left depicts a Duchenne smile. Note the uplifted cheeks and wrinkling around the eyes. The non-Duchenne smile, shown on the right, has neither of these features. Subjects who analyzed using the eyes were usually successful in determining the difference!
