If the upper lid is raised, it cannot also be scored as narrowed by 43 (e.g., drooped, closed to a slit, closed), tightened in 7E (a squint), closed in a blink, or closed in a wink. 43 @ 45
43 @ 46
If the eyelid closure is decreasing, but the eyes remain open, they cannot also be scored closed in a blink or a wink. If the eyes are closed in 43E, they cannot also be scored in a blink or in a wink because of the time of closure criterion. 45 @ 46 If the eyes are in a blink, they cannot also wink.
1In scoring facial behavior, if you see evidence of one AU listed in an Alternative table, you cannot score the presence of another AU paired with it in the table. The symbol @ is used to stand for the word `alternative.'
