Instructional Manipulation Checks: Detecting Satisficing to Increase Statistical Power
Participants are not always as diligent in reading and following instructions as experimenters would like them to be. When participants fail to follow instructions, this increases noise and decreasesExpand
Silhouetted face profiles: a new methodology for face perception research.
A shape-based parameterization that relies on a small set of landmark points is described and it is shown that face silhouettes can be effectively represented in a 20-dimensional "silhouette face space" and that in this physical space, distance from the center of the space corresponds to perceived distinctiveness.

Face‐likeness and image variability drive responses in human face‐selective ventral regions
These studies provide novel evidence that face‐selective responses correlate with the perceived face‐likeness of stimuli, but this effect is revealed only when image variability is controlled across conditions, and show that variability is a powerful factor that drives responses across the ventral stream.

The effects of justice motivation on memory for self- and other-relevant events ☆
We examined whether people might distort and selectively remember the past in ways that enable them to sustain a belief in a just world (BJW; Lerner, M. J. (1980). The belief in a just world: AExpand
Physical and perceptual accuracy of upright and inverted face drawings
ABSTRACT This study considers the conception that drawing or copying a face that is vertically inverted will improve the accuracy of the drawing by preventing holistic interference. We used a novelExpand
Gender aftereffects in face silhouettes reveal face-specific mechanisms
Recently a parameterized face space has been created using profile face silhouettes (Davidenko, 2007). Face silhouettes provide enough information for accurate judgements of age, gender,Expand
Compensatory Rationalizations and the Resolution of Everyday Undeserved Outcomes
The authors propose that compensatory biases manifest in people’s interpretive processes and memory and provide evidence that people have a natural tendency to anticipate compensatory outcomes in the future which might lead them to perceive a current situation as relatively more fair. Expand
Attending to Race (or Gender) Does Not Increase Race (or Gender) Aftereffects
The results suggest that attending to a facial dimension such as race or gender does not result in increased adaptation to that dimension, and aftereffects were not stronger along attention-congruent than attention-incongruent dimensions. Expand
