Dopaminergic modulation of dynamic emotion perception:
By controlling for interindividual differences in baseline dopamine function we revealed effects of haloperidol on emotion recognition in healthy individuals and investigated potential mechanistic pathways via which dopamine may modulate emotion recognition. Our findings suggest that dopamine may influence emotion recognition via its effects on temporal processing, providing new directions for future research on typical and atypical emotion recognition.
