I'm doing a project about differences between the left and right sides of a face. I am trying to seek information about a research study by phychologists at the University of Pennsylvania in which they examined thousands of faces and concluded that when we undergo stress we set in motion the muscles on the left side of the face with greatest force. My experiement involves taking digital photographs of faces and cutting them into left and right halves and recomposing the halves to create whole faces from each of the sides. These faces will be reviewed to try to establish if there are differences between the two halves that may be related to muscle use. I am also exploring the subject called physiognomy. If you can direct me to, or provide me with details of the U of Pen study I would greatly appreciate it. Any other information or insights would be appreciated. Looking forward to your response, Megan
