The CAM evaluates a selection of 20 emotion concepts, taken from an emotion taxonomy (described at greater length in Baron-Cohen, Golan, Wheelwright, & Hill, 2004).
The battery includes two tasks: emotion recognition in the face and emotion recognition in the voice.
Type of Measure: Adults with Asperger Syndrome reportedly have difficulty recognizing and understanding complex emotions, which impacts their ability communicate (Golan, Baron-Cohen, & Hill, 2006).
The Cambridge Mindreading (CAM) Face-Voice Battery was designed to assess the wide emotional repertoire of adults and to examine each emotion thoroughly through both visual and auditory modalities.
