The purpose of this research study is to detect timing differences in movement onset when subjects produce facial expressions either intentionally or spontaneously as a means to determine what brain area is responsible for initiating the facial expression. This study uses a high-speed video camera to study how emotion is expressed on the face. Research participants will be shown videos to provoke different emotions while sitting in a chair facing the camera. Participants may also be asked to demonstrate different emotions. Participants will be asked to make specific facial movements as well as spontaneous facial movements made in response to short videos. All sessions will be at the University of Colorado, Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora Colorado
