How to read the face of a mouse

The neuroscientific investigation of emotions is hindered by a lack of rapid and precise readouts of emotion states in model organisms. Dolensek et al. identified facial expressions as innate and sensitive reflections of the internal emotion state in mice (see the Perspective by Girard and Bellone). Mouse facial expressions evoked by diverse stimuli could be classified into emotionlike categories, similar to basic emotions in humans. Machine-learning algorithms categorized mouse facial expressions objectively and quantitatively at millisecond time scales. Intensity, value, and persistence of subjective emotion states could thus be decoded in individual animals. Combining facial expression analysis with two-photon calcium imaging allowed the identification of single neurons whose activity closely correlated with specific facial expressions in the insular cortex, a brain region implicated in affective experiences in humans.
