Abstract

Two studies investigated emotion-related biases in selective attention for pictorial stimuli in nonclinical subjects ; the stimuli inc luded threatening, happy and neutral facial expressions. The combined resul ts showed evi - denc e of an emotion-related attentional bias for facial expressions (i .e . an interaction ef fect of dysphoria and the emotional valenc e of the facial expression on attentional bias) . In particular, nondysphoric subjects (i .e . those with low levels of anxiety and depression) showed an attentional bias away from threatening facial expressions, relativ e to neutral expres- sions. The dysphoric subjects did not show signi ® cant evidenc e of attentional biases for emotional stimul i.
