Still Waters Posted March 10, 2017 #1 Share Posted March 10, 2017 (IP: Staff) · The subject of centuries of scrutiny and debate, Mona Lisa's famous smile is routinely described as ambiguous. But is it really that hard to read? Apparently not. In an unusual trial, close to 100 per cent of people described her expression as unequivocally "happy", researchers revealed on Friday (March 10). "We really were astonished," neuroscientist Juergen Kornmeier of the University of Freiburg in Germany, who co-authored the study, told AFP. Kornmeier and a team used what is arguably the most famous artwork in the world in a study of factors that influence how humans judge visual cues such as facial expressions. http://www.straitstimes.com/world/europe/mona-lisas-smile-decoded-science-says-shes-happy 2 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
