Ginatempo, Francesca (2019) Facial motor system: voluntary and emotional control. Doctoral Thesis.
Face expressions have a crucial role in human nonverbal behaviour and can be either voluntarily or emotionally controlled. The variety of functions of facial muscles, is reflected in their anatomical and histological characteristics. Face muscles present a peculiar coordination, in fact also during voluntary movements, facial muscles’ groups are always recruited together to produce a facial posture, but how and at which level
they are coordinated and controlled by the emotional system is still unknown. For long time was impossible to study the motor control of facial muscle in humans. Only
recently several studies have demonstrated that it is possible to probe it using transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS).
