The proximate mechanisms and ultimate functions of smiles

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 33 (6):454-455 (2010)

Abstract
Niedenthal et al's classification of smiles erroneously conflates psychological mechanisms and adaptive functions. This confusion weakens the rationale behind the types of smiles they chose to individuate, and it obfuscates the distinction between the communicative versus denotative nature of smiles and the role of perceived-gaze direction in emotion recognition
