The ADFES is a rich stimulus set of 648 filmed emotional expressions. It is distinct from previous sets for several reasons:
It consists of dynamic expressions rather than static pictures.
It features displays of nine emotions: the six ‘basic’ emotions (anger, disgust, fear, joy, sadness, and surprise), as well as contempt, pride and embarrassment.
Expressions are displayed by 22 models (10 female, 12 male).
It included North-European and Mediterranean models.
It utilizes active head-turning to clarify the directedness of the expressions.
