But why does facial asymmetry affect emotions?

Several groups of scientists working independently have found that people with high levels of activity in the left frontal cortex tend to have a more cheerful and positive temperament—they are self-confident, outgoing, interested in people and external events, resilient, optimistic, and happy.

On the other hand, people whose EEGs show more activity in the right frontal cortex than in the left tend to be more sad and negative in their outlook—they see the world as more stressful and threatening, are more suspicious of people, and feel far more fear, disgust, anxiety, self-blame, and hopelessness than the left-activated group.

These findings make it particularly exciting that mind machines have proven capable of quickly altering hemispheric dominance.
