Configural relations and a critical band of spatial frequencies (SFs) in the middle range are particularly important for face recognition. We report the results of four experiments in which the relationship between these two types of information was examined. In Experiments 1, 2A, and 2B, the face inversion effect (FIE) was used to probe configural face(More)
Face recognition in photographic positive and negative was examined in a same/different matching task in five lighting direction conditions using untextured 3-D laser-scanned faces. The lighting directions were +60, +30, 0, -30 and -60 degrees, where negative values represent bottom lighting and positive values represent top lighting. Recognition(More)
In two experiments, category verification of images of common objects at subordinate, basic, and superordinate levels was performed after low-pass spatial filtering, high-pass spatial filtering, 50% phase randomization, or no image manipulation. Both experiments demonstrated the same pattern of results: Low-pass filtering selectively impaired(More)
Previous studies have suggested that face identification is more sensitive to variations in spatial frequency content than object recognition, but none have compared how sensitive the 2 processes are to variations in spatial frequency overlap (SFO). The authors tested face and object matching accuracy under varying SFO conditions. Their results showed that(More)
The stratified squamous epithelium of the oral gingiva and the hard palate is characterized by a tissue architecture and a cytoskeletal composition similar to, although not identical with, that of the epidermis and fundamentally different from that of the adjacent non-masticatory oral mucosa. Using immunocytochemistry with antibodies specific for individual(More)
Among the more than 30 different human proteins of the cytokeratin (CK) group of intermediate filament (IF) proteins, the significance of the epidermal polypeptide CK 2 (Moll et al., 1982, Cell 31, 11-24) has been repeatedly questioned in the literature. Here, we show, by in vitro translation and protein gel electrophoresis, that human epidermis from(More)
The effects of spatial frequency overlap between pairs of low-pass versus high-pass images on face recognition and matching were examined in 6 experiments. Overlap was defined as the range of spatial frequencies shared by a pair of filtered images. This factor was manipulated by processing image pairs with high-pass/low-pass filter pairs whose 50% cutoff(More)
Terminal differentiation of squamous epithelia is usually characterized by the synthesis of a subset of cytokeratins (CKs) in suprabasal cell layers which become major components of the intermediate filament (IF) bundle cytoskeleton of the maturing cells. We have examined the significance, molecular nature and pattern of synthesis of the elusive human CK 2(More)
This study examined the metacognitive aspects of face-name learning with the goal of providing a comprehensive profile of monitoring performance during this task. Four types of monitoring judgments were solicited during encoding and retrieval of novel face-name associations. Across all of the monitoring judgments, relative accuracy was significantly above(More)
Cytokeratins represent specific markers of certain pathways of epithelial differentiation. The purpose of this study was to describe the alterations of cytokeratin pattern and topographical distribution of individual cytokeratins in inflamed gingiva. Five healthy and 15 inflammatory samples of human gingiva were studied. From each biopsy, cryostat sections(More)
