When Feature Information Comes First! Early Processing of Inverted Faces
Investigation of the early stages of face recognition and the role of featural and holistic face information exploited the fact that, on inversion, the alienating disorientation of the eyes and mouth in thatcherised faces is hardly detectable to test specific face-processing hypotheses. Expand
Facial recognition and visual processing as we age: Using the Thatcher illusion with famous and non-famous faces
This paper reports a study examining preferred visual processes in recognition of facial features in older vs younger age groups, using Thatcherised images of famous and non-famous people in the oneExpand
Face Processing Systems: From Neurons to Real-World Social Perception.
This work has shown that the functional similarities of the face-selective areas in humans and macaques indicate they are homologous, and this has important implications for consequential situations such as eyewitness identification and policing. Expand
Evolutionary Psychology as a Metatheory for the Social Sciences: How to Gather Interdisciplinary Evidence for a Psychological Adaptation
Evolutionary psychology has been proposed as a new metatheory for the social sciences (Buss, 1995). Evolutionary psychology is an approach that emphasizes the evolutionary background of psychologicalExpand
Gestalt Processing in Human-Robot Interaction: A Novel Account for Autism Research
The paper presents a novel analysis focused on showing that education is possible through robotic enhancement of the Gestalt processing in children with autism, which is not comparable to alternativeExpand
The Uncanny Valley Effect
This thesis presents the first evidence that differences in eeriness may result from incongruities between emotional expressions, and explores the relationship between the human-likeness of faces and emotional responses to them. Expand
From the laboratory to the real world : Evaluating the impact of impostors, expertise and individual differences on human face matching performance.

Meanings, Mechanisms, and Measures of Holistic Processing
This work explores why convergence has been slow to emerge in the study of face recognition, and suggests that not all meanings of holistic processing are equally suited to help us understand that important difference. Expand
EEG Power Spectral Measurements Comparing Normal and “Thatcherized” Faces
The results of a broadband analysis to detect the electroencephalogram frequencies that change selectively during the presentation of normal and “thatcherized” faces support the hypothesis that a change in EEG power spectral may be related to discrimination between normal and thatcherized faces.

The eyes or the mouth? Feature salience and unfamiliar face processing in Williams syndrome and autism
Using traditional face perception paradigms the current study explores unfamiliar face processing in two neurodevelopmental disorders, including autism and Williams syndrome, in an exploration of feature salience for processing the eye and mouth regions of unfamiliar faces. Expand
