This chapter offers information on a videoconference experiment in which real-time facial avatars driven by motion capture from a video were developed and tested to examine the real-time dissociation of facial appearance and dynamics during natural conversation. It emphasizes that the use of this avatar technology in behavior research allows the study of facial expressions with realistic-looking avatars which are able to manipulate the facial movements and vocal sounds of the participants of the study during interactive conversation. The chapter concludes that facial avatar technology is likely to be used in the future in professions such as teaching, in human–computer interactions, and in the treatment of people with affective disorders.

Keywords:   facial appearance, natural conversation, facial avatar technology, facial expressions, facial movements, human–computer interactions
