In this paper, we propose a hybrid architecture combining radial basis function network (RBFN) and Principal Component Analysis (PCA) re-constructure model to perform facial expression recognition from static images. The resultant framework is a two stages coarse to fine discrimination model based on local features extracted from eyes and face images by applying PCA technique . It decomposes the acquired data into a small set of characteristic features. The objective of this research is to develop a more efficient approach to classify between seven prototypic facial expressions, such as neutral, joy, anger, surprise, fear, disgust, and sadness. A constructive procedure is detailed and the system performance is evaluated on a public database ”Japanese Females Facial Expression (JAFFE)”. As anticipated, the experimental results demonstrate the potential capabilities of the proposed approach.
