The evolutionary psychology of facial beauty.
  • G. Rhodes
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Annual review of psychology
  • 2006
TLDR
It is argued that both kinds of selection pressures may have shaped the authors' perceptions of facial beauty. Expand
Are you always on my mind? A review of how face perception and attention interact
TLDR
Whether aspects of face perception are "automatic", in that they are especially rapid, non-conscious, mandatory and capacity-free, and whether limited-capacity selective attention mechanisms are preferentially recruited by faces and facial expressions is examined. Expand
Does sexual dimorphism in human faces signal health?
TLDR
The results support the immunocompetence-handicap hypothesis for male faces in that masculine traits signalled health during adolescence, but suggest that any health-related evolutionary benefits obtained from preferences for attractive facial traits may be weak. Expand
Orientation-Contingent Face Aftereffects and Implications for Face-Coding Mechanisms
TLDR
The results, demonstrating orientation-contingent adaptation of face-coding mechanisms, suggest that the FFA's apparent lack of orientation selectivity may be an artifact of averaging across distinct populations within the F FA that respond to upright and inverted faces. Expand
What's lost in inverted faces?
TLDR
Three studies that compare inversion decrements for detecting changes that span the isolated-relational features continuum support the interpretation of disproportionate inversion effects as evidence of relational coding, and consider alternative construals of the configural coding notion. Expand
Contact, configural coding and the other-race effect in face recognition.
TLDR
Investigation of how contact affects the size of the other-race effect in face recognition and the use of expert configural face-coding mechanisms showed that higher levels of contact were associated with a reduction in the ORE, and smaller cross-race differences in configural coding were alsoassociated with a smaller ORE. Expand
Fitting the mind to the World
TLDR
The results suggest that perceptual adaptation can rapidly recalibrate people's preferences to fit the faces they see, and suggest that average faces are attractive because of their central location in a distribution of faces (i.e., prototypicality), rather than because of any intrinsic appeal of particular physical characteristics.

Looking at Faces: First-Order and Second-Order Features as Determinants of Facial Appearance
  • G. Rhodes
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Perception
  • 1 February 1988
TLDR
Nonmetric multidimensional scaling (KYST) was carried out on similarity judgments of forty-one photographs of faces, finding little difference in the extent to which first-order and second-order features were encoded. Expand
The dynamics of visual adaptation to faces.
TLDR
It is postulate that the mechanisms governing these shared dynamics may be dissociable from the responses of feature-selective neurons in the early visual cortex, and closely resembled that of other aftereffects. Expand
Adaptive norm-based coding of facial identity
TLDR
An adaptive norm-based coding model of face identity is proposed, observing a larger aftereffect for opposite than non-opposite adapt-test pairs that are matched on perceptual contrast (dissimilarity). Expand
