Banner Graphic
Trevor enjoys playing paintball and acting. He also plays the piano and soccer. Trevor might someday want to work in the medical field because he "enjoys working with people."
Project Graphic
Trevor's interest in facial expressions was sparked by research on how people with autism have trouble interpreting emotions reflected in others' eyes. He decided to see if gender might affect a person's ability to read emotions portrayed in the eyes. He hypothesized that women would read facial expressions more accurately than men.
Trevor showed 25 photographs of eyes from people displaying various emotions to 60 men and 60 women. The volunteers ranged in age from 8 to 89. He found that men and women were almost equally correct in guessing what emotion was reflected in the eye photographs. Teenage females were slightly more adept in reading emotions than teenage males, but men over 50 were better at the task than women in the same age range.
