The researchers evaluated how a covert smile influences the perception of face and body expressions. In both scenarios, participants had a task to smile holding a pen between their teeth and forced their facial muscles to replicate the movement of a smile.

Lead researcher and human and artificial cognition expert Dr Marmolejo-Ramos says: “When your muscles say you're happy, you're more likely to see the world around you in a positive way. In our research, we found that when you forcefully practise smiling, it stimulates the amygdala — the emotional center of the brain — which releases neurotransmitters to encourage an emotionally positive state.”
