Facial expression of pain – more than a fuzzy expression of distress?

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 25 (4):462-463 (2002)
Abstract
Facial expressions of pain may be best conceptualized as an example of an evolved propensity to communicate distress, rather than as a distinct category of facial expression. The operant model goes beyond the evolutionary account, as it can explain how the (facial) expression of pain can become maladaptive as a result of its capability to elicit attention and caring behavior in the observer.
