The face inversion effect is based on 2 phenomena: Recognition of faces presented upright (hair above, chin below) is better than that of faces presented inverted (chin above, hair below), and inversion impairs recognition of faces more than of nonfacial objects (buildings, cars). Based on theoretical and empirical considerations, this article suggests that(More)
The purpose of the present paper is to describe a new technique and a mathematical model--called the "Catch model"--for identifying a face previously seen (i.e., the target face). Both the technique and the model were developed on the basis of the general approach of information processing used with respect to human memory. Subjects were presented with a(More)
The goal of the present paper is to propose a solution to the 'saliency problem' which has been raised in regard to Rakover and Cahlon's (1989) Catch model for identifying a previously seen target face (Ft). In contrast to real life situations, the Catch model assigned the same weight to different facial dimensions and values. Mathematical proofs,(More)
Cohen (1963) investigated free recall in two lists of words. The first contained unrelated words. The second comprised words drawn from several semantic categories, where the number of categories was equal to the number of words in the first list. He found that recall of unrelated words was equal to the recall of categories. The face recognition by(More)
We propose a model, face-checking, that is based on first-order relational properties and discriminates between different faces (regular and scrambled) and predicts their similarity choice in 2 orientations: upright and inverted. The results of an experiment confirmed the model's predictive ability. An alternative hypothesis, which is based on facial(More)
