Author(s) Sonnby-Borgström, Marianne
Date 2008
English abstract
The aims of this study were to investigate alexithymia in relation to facial imitation, attachment, and empathy. Pictures of facial expressions were presented to 102 participants. Electromyographic activity was measured. Self-report questionnaires were used to measure alexithymia, attachment, and empathy. High-alexithymic participants showed less imitative responses and less empathy and less secure pattern of attachment.
