Landis' Facial Expressions Experiment
This experiment was conducted by Dr. Landis, his goal was to discover if all people had a common facial expression while feeling different emotions such as: fear, joy, disgust, etc.

Each participant was brought into the lab and had black lines painted on their faces, to examine the movement of their facial muscles. The participants were then put through multiple tasks to encourage a strong reaction. When each person reacted they were photographed.

The first tasks they were put through were to smell ammonia, watch pornography, and put their hand in a bucket of frogs. In the final task the participants were given a live rat and asked to cut its head off. Landis' experiment ended up being a big mess, but he did find out that humans don't have common set of facial expressions.
