Brain-injured patients can relearn emotions

ts that the majority of the information we gather about somebody else's emotional state is based on their facial expression," said Willer. "We gather a little from the voice, we gather a little from body language, but the majority comes from the face."

FAR participants will view faces on a computer screen equipped with cues that direct them to concentrate on specific elements of each face "Look at the eyes. What are the eyes doing? What is the mouth doing?" and asks them to name the emotion.

From this information, participants are asked to infer the emotions imbedded in the story. Willer uses the admittedly simplistic "joking-at-the-funeral" example, to describe how a story intervention works.

The control group will receive computer-based educational instruction in areas such as banking or applying for a job, and will learn how to use Word and Excel programs and how to search the Internet.

All participants will receive treatments three times a week for three weeks. They will be tested immediately at the end of the treatment, and at three and six months post-treatment. Willer and colleagues will ev
