Facial Action Coding System—

The Facial Action Coding System (FACS) is the cumulative database of research and development of microexpressions within behavioral science created by The Paul Ekman Group, LLC. Seven years in the making, it was originally developed by Paul Ekman and two colleagues after many years of work discovering the universal emotions of the human face. The results have culminated in a manual that is now used by law officers, doctors, performers and is becoming increasingly popular with teachers.
