This chapter explains the recognition of affect from human movement within the broader context of the recognition of different styles of movement. It begins by defining the meaning of movement style and then discusses possible theoretical constraints and what essential properties of a movement might support recognition. This leads to the notion of decomposing movements into features and a review of studies investigating the decomposition of movements into features. The recognition of affect from human movement is then explored.

Keywords:   human movement, movement style, recognition of affect, decomposing movements, features
