The detection and recognition of a human face should meet the need forsocial interaction that drives a humanoid robot, and it should be consistent with itscognitive model and the perceived scene. The paper deals with the description ofthe potential of having a system of emotional contagion, and proposes a simpleimplementation of it. An emotional index allows to build a mechanism whichtends to align the emotional states of the robot and the human when a specificobject is detected in the scene. Pursuing the idea of social interaction based onaffect recognition, a first practical application capable of managing the emotionalflow is described, involving both conceptual spaces and an emotional/motivationalmodel of cognitive architecture
