Feedback[edit source]

Hiya! Just a few things about formatting, I'm not entirely sure what the correct version is but I'm not sure about the bullet points under your headings like Auditory and Visual because there's only one bullet point so it should just be a paragraph? There's also a stray comma under your second quiz question, but other than that the article looks great. For your overview you could do a fictional example like a couple who sit down to have coffee and one person can immediately tell something is off about the other person. Best of luck! :) User:EllaWard 11:45AM 22/10/2017

Case study idea[edit source]

Hey Kelsie, I have a had quick read of your book chapter and find it really interesting. In regard to your difficultly in integrating a case study into your chapter, I thought you may be able to write one about the link you discussed about Oxycontin and emotional perception maybe in a couple relationship... I'll have a think about it some more and let you know. Hope this helps a little --U3119414 (discusscontribs) 22:59, 21 October 2017 (UTC) Gemma

Heading casing[edit source]

Crystal Clear app ktip.svg
FYI, the convention on Wikiversity is for lower-cased headings. For example, use:

==Cats and dogs==

rather than

==Cats and Dogs==

Default heading style[edit source]

I suggest using default heading styles for consistency across chapters e.g., remove big, bold etc. additions. -- Jtneill - Talk - c 01:08, 1 September 2017 (UTC)

Suggestions for topic development[edit source]

Hey Kelsie, just responding to your Moodle request for feedback on further chapter development. First want to say I love your chapter so far, you've done a great job and chosen a fascinating topic! You mentioned the implications for schizophrenia, another relevant area you could look at is autism - here's a meta-analysis if you want to check it out as a starting point.
Contrasting the evolutionary perspective with the theory of constructed emotion is a fabulous idea - it will really highlight some of the issues involved with emotion perception, super interesting area! Here's an article to give you some more ideas for this section: "Emotional intelligence needs a rewrite". You might also like this All in the Mind podcast with Lisa Feldman Barrett (possible external link for your chapter??): "The creation of emotions". Hope this helps and wishing you all the best! --u3122707 (discusscontribs) 03:08, 26 September 2017 (UTC)

Hi Kelsie, I have some references for definitions of emotions as well as their role in behaviour which might be useful for your chapter. I accessed all of them through google scholar and the UC library so if you are logged in the DOI links should work. Cabanac, M. (2002). What is emotion?. Behavioural Processes, 60(2), 69-83.

Topic development[edit source]

Hi Kelsey Ive been having a look at your chapter and it looks like you have a good plan unfolding! Whilst reading it I was wondering about individuals who have impaired emotion perception (think you have already identified schizophrenia). I found an interesting study that may be useful on individuals with dementia and how semantic dementia impacts emotion perception. I'm not sure if the link will work as I went through the uc library with my password to access it. Also there is a small typo in the sentence As defined by Mitchell and Phillips (2015) emotion perception is a the identification emotionally salient information. Good luck with the chapter. Let me know if you need anything else as we go along --U3135539 (discusscontribs) 04:27, 28 September 2017 (UTC)

Topic development[edit source]

Also I have been watching the program "Lie to Me" that James showed in the emotion lecture. Its great! and I would say worth watching with your book chapter topic. Dr. Ekman and Lie to Me The main character, Dr. Cal Lightman is loosely based off of Dr. Ekman. Many of the episodes of Lie to Me feature references from Dr. Ekman’s own experiences. For example, the pilot episode shows Dr. Lightman lecturing to several FBI agents. Dr. Ekman lectured to the FBI in a variety of settings throughout his career. In the scene, two agents discuss how Cal reportedly traveled to the African jungle to study facial expressions in a primitive tribe. This reference is based on Dr. Ekman’s own travels. In 1967 and 1968, Dr. Ekman traveled to Papua New Guinea to study facial expressions in an isolated tribe. Lightman shows the FBI agents a tape of his interview with a suspect accused of trying to firebomb a church. Lightman focuses the agents’ attention on close-ups of the suspect’s face. He points out various micro expressions of emotions the suspect is trying to conceal. One of the agents asks if micro expressions vary depending on the person. Lightman responds by juxtaposing the suspect’s micro expression of scorn with a still of Kato Kaelin exhibiting the same expression . This scene highlights Dr. Ekman’s scientific findings that micro expressions are universal. Good luck! --U3135539 (discusscontribs) 04:43, 28 September 2017 (UTC)

Key points[edit source]

  1. Key points are well developed for each section, with relevant citations.
  2. Include in-text interwiki links for the first mention of key terms to relevant Wikipedia articles.

Case Studies[edit source]

Hey there, i saw your post on moodle and thought i'd see if i could help you integrate case studies. Firstly just wanted to say well done on an excellent chapter - very informative and interesting, you've picked a great topic. When i read Quiz question 4, about John, I thought you could possibly do a case study relating to this - how you could apply one of the methods to improve emotional perception. You could possibly discuss the specific steps you would take for John to improve and the results from implementing this method. Hope this was of some help! Goodluck :) --Tahliachristofersen (discusscontribs) 13:51, 21 October 2017 (UTC)

Overall[edit source]

  1. Overall, this is a reasonable chapter - the theory and research content is good, but the execution in terms of the quality of written English could be improved to a more professional standard.
  2. For additional feedback, see these copyedits.

Theory[edit source]

  1. Theories were well described and explained.
  2. The Conclusion is very dense - what are the practical, take-home messages?

Research[edit source]

  1. Useful, relevant research is cited.
  2. When describing important research findings, indicate the size of effects in addition to whether or not there was an effect or relationship.
  3. Greater emphasis on major reviews and meta-analyses would be helpful.
  4. Some statements were unreferenced - see the [factual?] tags

Written expression[edit source]

  1. Written expression
    1. Some sentences are unnecessarily wordy - strive for the simplest expression of the point being made.
    2. Some paragraphs are overly long. Each paragraph should communicate one key idea in three to five sentences.
    3. Avoid directional referencing e.g., "aforementioned"
  2. Layout
    1. The chapter was well structured, with major sections using sub-sections.
  3. Learning features
    1. Use in-text interwiki links, rather than external links.
    2. Add/integrate interwiki links to related chapters e.g., on oxytocin and tDCS
    3. Good use of images and case studies.
  4. Spelling, grammar and proofreading
    1. Check and correct use of ownership apostrophes e.g., individuals -> individual's
    2. Spelling can be improved - e.g., see the [spelling?] tags.
    3. More proofreading is needed to fix typos (e.g. spacing) and bring the quality of written expression closer to a professional standard.
    4. Check and correct use of commas.
    5. Semi-colons are over-used. Consider using a colon instead, in many instances.
  5. APA style
    1. Use APA style when referring to Figures (i.e., check and correct capitalisation)
    2. Numbers under 10 should be written in words (e.g., five); numbers 10 and over should be written in numbers (e.g., 10)
    3. Citations
      1. Check and correct APA style formatting for citations.
      2. Use ampersand (&) inside brackets and "and" outside brackets.
    4. References are not in full APA style e.g.,
      1. See new doi format
      2. Do not include issue numbers for journals which are continuously numbered within volumes.
