With the increasing applications of computing systems, recognizing accurate and application oriented human expressions, is becoming a challenging topic. The face is a highly attractive biometric trait for expression recognition because of its physiological structure and location. In this paper we proposed two different subspace projection methods that are the extensions of basis subspace projection methods and applied them successfully for facial expression recognition. Our first proposal is an improved principal component analysis for facial expression recognition in frontal images by using an extension of eigenspaces and we term this as WR-PCA (region based and weighted principal component analysis). Secondly we proposed locally salient Independent component analysis(LS-ICA) method for facial expression analysis. These two methods are extensively discussed in the rest of the paper. Experiments with Cohn-kanade database show that these techniques achieves an accuracy rate of 93% when using LS-ICA and 91.81% when WR-PCA and 83.05% when using normal PCA. Our main contribution here is that by performing WR-PCA, which is an extension of typical PCA and first investigated by us, we achieve a nearly similar result as LS-ICA which is a very well established technique to identify partial distortion.
