Photographs of facial composites, half the face smiling and the other half not smiling, were tachistoscopically presented to right-handed and left-handed subjects. Both handedness groups perceived faces as happier when it was the left side of the poser's face that was smiling, and this held for both left- and right-handed posers. Additionally, right-handed, but not left-handed, subjects perceived faces as happier when the smiling half-face was in the left visual field.
