I had recorded actors expressing different basic emotions through their walking gait with a Vicon motion capture system. I then asked perceivers to identify the expressed emotion and rate the expressed emotional intensity of each point-light walker stimulus. After the experiment, I asked the perceivers to describe which walking cues they used to identify each emotion. I then used the most frequently reported identification strategies as a basis to drive the kinematic analyses from this dataset.
