Development and Validation Study of the Yonsei Mindreading Face Battery(Y-CAM)

Accurately identifying other’s emotional states is crucial for fluent social interaction.

The Cambridge Mindreading (CAM) Face Battery is widely used to assess one’s emotional recognition ability with video-taped 24 sets of subtle emotional expression. However, the video stimulus is limited to Caucasian population and include emotional expressions uncommon in Asian culture. The purpose of this study is to develop and validate Yonsei Mindreading Face Battery(Y-CAM), which is Korean version of CAM. The video and Y-CAM can yield significant outcomes as the face stimuli can be utilized as experimental tools in diverse fields of academic studies with Asian population.
