Recognition of unfamiliar faces
TLDR
The relationships between different parts of the face (its 'configuration') are as important to the impression created of an upright face as the local features themselves, suggesting further constraints on the representations derived from faces. Expand
Do Faces Capture the Attention of Individuals with Williams Syndrome or Autism? Evidence from Tracking Eye Movements
  • D. Riby, P. Hancock
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Journal of autism and developmental disorders
  • 1 March 2009
TLDR
The neuro-developmental disorders of Williams syndrome and autism can reveal key components of social cognition and attention mechanisms, and individuals with WS showed prolonged face gaze across tasks, relating to the typical WS social phenotype. Expand
Viewing it differently: Social scene perception in Williams syndrome and Autism
TLDR
Eye-tracking techniques are used to investigate how individuals with these two neuro-developmental disorders associated with distinct social characteristics view scenes containing people and suggest more attention should be drawn towards understanding the implications of atypical social preferences in WS.

TLDR
The reported gaze behaviours provide experimental evidence of the divergent social interests associated with autism and WS. Expand
Robust representations for face recognition: The power of averages
TLDR
It is suggested that this is a good candidate for a robust face representation and how PCA on image averages appears to preserve identity-specific face information, while eliminating non-diagnostic pictorial information is described. Expand
Face processing: Human perception and principal components analysis
TLDR
It is concluded that shape and “texture” (the image-based information remaining after morphing) may be used separately by the human face processing system, and that PCA of images offers a useful tool for understanding this system. Expand
Human female attractiveness: waveform analysis of body shape
TLDR
BMI is a stronger predictor of attractiveness than WHR, and it is possible that body shape is an important cue to attractiveness, but that simple ratios (such as WHR) are not adequately capturing it. Expand
From Pixels to People: A Model of Familiar Face Recognition
TLDR
This paper presents a model of human face recognition which combines both a perceptual and a cognitive component, and demonstrates that this model has a much wider predictive range than either perceptual or cognitive models alone. Expand
A forensically valid comparison of facial composite systems
An evaluation of E-FIT, PROfit, Sketch, Photofit and EvoFIT composite construction techniques was carried out in a “forensically friendly format”: composites of unfamiliar targets were constructedExpand
