Dear all,

We would like to invite you to the next ANaP lab colloquium by Vanessa Mitschke (University of Würzburg) on Wednesday (Nov. 16) at 15:30. Please find the title, abstract, and information about the venue below.

Title: Social Aversion and The Face. How we represent and react towards unpleasant interaction partners.

Abstract: In the realm of this talk I will provide an overview of three different study lines investigating changes in muscular responses and visual representations due to experienced or expected unpleasantness of an interaction partner.

I hate your face. Changes in the visual mental representation of opponent faces due to conflict. In a serious of studies, we investigated the changes in visual representations of others based on experienced aggressive conflict and emotional reactions. Resulting in less favorable face representation after experienced unpleasantness.

You smile and I do not reply. Timing and voluntary suppression of forced smiles towards disliked targets. In a series of studies, we present evidence of more efficient response inhibition of facial muscular activation towards disliked targets in a go/nogo task.

Your face gives me the creeps. An exploratory investigation of visual and social cues of creepiness. In this preliminary study we examined the social and visual cues that underlie perceptions of ambivalent and unpleasant others.

Venue: Seminar room 1.134, GEMI (Goßlerstraße 14, 37073 Göttingen)

We are looking forward to seeing you at our colloquium. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

Kind regards,
Yasaman Rafiee
