Abstract

Emotional facial expression (EFE) accurate recognition is needed to ensure good interpersonal communication and relationship.

Impaired recognition of emotional facial expressions has been described in many neuropsychiatric disorders. Neuronal circuits dysfunctions and/or inappropriate learning processes could explain these recognition difficulties.

EFE decoding disturbances in adult neuropsychiatric disorders are reviewed. For some of these disorders, a correlation has been evidenced between poor recognition of EFE and interpersonal difficulties.

Treatment of EFE dysfunctions seems possible but it is not yet known if such a treatment could improve the interpersonal life of patients with neuropsychiatric disorders.
