Abstract

This chapter reports a study that addressed developmental changes in the associations between positive periods of interaction and different types of smiling and other facial expressions. It specifically explores the meaning of the associations of different types of facial expressions with specific interactive periods, examines the development of these associations, and reviews alternate interpretations and supporting evidence. Frequent observations of thirteen infants yielded appreciable and reliable differences between different types of smiling in different periods of interaction that tended to grow stronger with age and could be observed in a significant proportion of individual infants. The different types of smiles index different intensities of joy.
