Deaf and hearing subjects saw filmed cartoons combining various motions and facial expressions, and judged the films on a friendly-hostile scale. The two groups of subjects differed in their judgments of some motions, but not of facial expressions. Deaf subjects made more errors identifying facial expressions they had seen and tended more to combine stimulus elements in configurational rather than linear fashions. Weighted-average models predicted more of the results than summation models, but a configural model seems required by several results. Explanations of the deaf/hearing differences are suggested, including short-term memory factors.
