Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) It has been suggested that the anxiety and facial expression have influence on attention orienting by gaze cues, but it remains inconclusive. We investigated this issue, using fearful and neutral faces with straight, right, and left gaze as cues. Participants were asked to detect peripheral target following centrally presented cue. The higher is participants’ state anxiety levels, the stronger is gaze cueing effect not in neutral faces but in fearful faces. This effect depend on that more rapid attentional shift by fearful gaze in high state anxiety participants and/or more rapid disengagement from cued location by fearful gaze in low state anxiety participants. These results revealed anxiety modulate emotional gaze cueing.
