Meaningful Non-Verbal Communication (NVC) signals can be recognised by facial deformations based on video tracking. However, the geometric features previously used contain a signiﬁcant amount of redundant or irrelevant information. A feature selection method is described for selecting a subset of features that improves performance and allows for the identiﬁcation and visualisation of facial areas involved in NVC. The feature selection is based on a sequential backward elimination of features to ﬁnd a effective subset of components. This results in a signiﬁcant improvement in recognition performance, as well as providing evidence that brow lowering is involved in questioning sentences. The improvement in performance is a step towards a more practical automatic system and the facial areas identiﬁed provide some insight into human behaviour.
