Reproduction Materials for: Despite Appearances: Comparing Emotion Recognition in Abstract and Humanoid Avatars Using Nonverbal Behavior in Social Virtual Reality

Yilu Sun & Andrea Stevenson Won

Available studies typically focus on a single contract scheme or on a small geographical area in one country. We generate...

With a large random sample of CEOs of manufacturing firms...
