Study: Botox Users Can’t Read Others Emotions

It’s long been known that Botox limits one’s ability to show emotion via normal channels like smiling or say, furrowing one’s brow. But a new study has found Botox also limits one’s ability to do something else: read other people’s emotions. The LA Times says researchers think their findings give weight to the theory that humans use “facial mimicry” to figure out what others are feeling.

Read an abstract of the study, published in the latest issue of the Journal of Social Psychological and Personality Science.
