In Darwin’s view, blushing was ‘the most peculiar and most human of all expressions’ (1872/1965, p. 309). However, research has begun to shed light on the psychophysiological mechanisms and emotional correlates of blushing.


Blushing refers to the reddening of the face in emotionally charged situations, typically in association with feelings of embarrassment, guilt, or shame. The reddening is due to an accumulation of red blood cells in the superficial venous plexus in the facial skin.
