Masks found to be increasing human perception of ‘pain and rage’

People’s brains are becoming increasingly attuned to reading emotions on the small area of face visible when others are wearing masks. This is the conclusion of a study undertaken in Lisbon and dubbed “The Face of Emotions”. Investigators at the Fernando Pessoa University have discovered that brains are rediscovering “instinctual behaviour when human survival is at stake”. We are recovering the ability to read expressions more acutely.
