Human subjects are able to identify the sex of faces with very high accuracy. Using photographs of adults in which hair was concealed by a swimming cap, subjects performed with 96% accuracy. Previous work has identified a number of dimensions on which the faces of men and women differ. An attempt to combine these dimensions into a single function to(More)
In this study we examine the relationship between objective aspects of facial appearance and facial "distinctiveness". Specifically, we examine whether the extent to which a face deviates from "average" correlates with rated distinctiveness and measures of memorability. We find that, provided the faces are rated with hair concealed, reasonable correlations(More)
Three experiments are reported which provide evidence for the independence of effects of repetition from those of distinctiveness and semantic priming in the recognition of familiar faces. In Experiment 1, repetition priming is shown to be additive with face distinctiveness in a face familiarity decision task, where subjects make speeded familiarity(More)
Mark and Todd (1983) reported an experiment in which the cardioidal strain transformation was extended to three dimensions and applied to a three-dimensional (3-D) representation of the head of a 15-year-old girl in a direction that made the transformed head appear younger to the vast majority of their subjects. The experiments reported here extend this(More)
