TLDR
We analyzed the selectivity and the sparseness of firing to visual stimuli of single neurons in the primate temporal cortical visual area and found that their responses contained much more information about which of 20 face stimuli had been seen (on average 0.4 bits) than about which (of 20) nonface stimuli.

Visual cues to female physical attractiveness
Evolutionary psychology suggests that a woman's sexual attractiveness is based on cues of health and reproductive potential. In recent years, research has focused on the ratio of the width of theExpand

Male physical attractiveness in Britain and Malaysia: A cross-cultural study
Two purported cues to perceived female physical attractiveness are body mass index (BMI) and body shape as measured by the waist-to-hip ratio (WHR). This study examined the relative contribution ofExpand

Visual motion processing in the anterior ectosylvian sulcus of the cat.
1. Neurons that are selectively sensitive to the direction of motion of elongated contours have been found in several cortical areas in many species. However, in the striate cortex of the cat andExpand

Initial examination of the validity and reliability of the female photographic figure rating scale for body image assessment
The present study reports on the reliability and validity of an improved body image assessment scale, namely the female Photographic Figure Rating Scale (PFRS). This scale consists of tenExpand

Changing perceptions of attractiveness as observers are exposed to a different culture
It has been suggested that certain physical cues can be used to predict mate quality and that sensitivity to these cues would therefore be adaptive. From this, it follows that in environments whereExpand

In experiments to investigate the duration of the time for which cortical neurons respond when the identification of a visual stimulus is just possible, we presented a test face stimulus for 16 ms,Expand

Human female attractiveness: waveform analysis of body shape
Two putative cues to female physical attractiveness are body mass index (BMI) and shape (particularly the waist–hip ratio or WHR). To determine the relative importance of these cues we asked 23 maleExpand

Translation invariance in the responses to faces of single neurons in the temporal visual cortical areas of the alert macaque.
1. The responses of single neurons in the inferior temporal cortex and the cortex in the banks of the anterior part of the superior temporal sulcus of three awake, behaving macaques were recordedExpand
