Faces are complex visual objects, and faces chosen to vary in 1 regard may unintentionally vary in other ways, particularly if the correlation is a property of the population of faces. Here, we present an example of a correlation that arises from differences in the degree of sexual dimorphism. In Experiment 1, paired similarity ratings were collected for a set of 40 real face images chosen to vary in terms of gender and race (Asian vs. White). Multidimensional scaling (MDS) placed these stimuli… Expand
Exploring distinctiveness, attractiveness and sexual dimorphism in actualized face-spaces
ABSTRACT The multi-dimensional face-space metaphor has been a powerful explanatory force in face processing. Here, its predictive powers are considered for ratings of attractiveness, distinctivenessExpand
Gendered race: are infants’ face preferences guided by intersectionality of sex and race?
TLDR
The possibility that infant face processing may be susceptible to effects of intersectionality of sex and race is examined, and there is no evidence that White or Asian faces were preferred even though they are relatively more feminized. Expand
Gendered Facial Cues Influence Race Categorizations
TLDR
It is found that race categorizations are biased by presumably unrelated gender cues, and when targets’ race prototypicality was held constant, gender still influencedRace categorizations. Expand
Emotion and Gender Typicality Cue Sexual Orientation Differently in Women and Men
TLDR
Compared to men’s faces, women’'s faces varied less in their emotional expression but varied more in gender typicality, which aligns with gender role expectations requiring the expression of positive emotion by women and prohibiting theexpression of femininity by men. Expand
Development of infants’ representation of female and male faces
TLDR
Infants' gender-based categorization of faces is constrained by the set of features available in the input, and infants' ability to detect commonalities of features within categories is interpreted. Expand
Facial Image Manipulation
Image manipulation of real face photographs, including averaging, morphing, and caricaturing, is widely used in studies of face perception. These methods have led to theoretical insights acrossExpand
Environmental convergence in facial preferences: a cross-group comparison of Asian Vietnamese, Czech Vietnamese, and Czechs
TLDR
It is concluded that Vietnamese people permanently living in the Czech Republic converge with Czechs of Czech origin in perceptions of facial attractiveness and that this population adopted some but not all Czech standards of beauty. Expand
The validated circular shape space: Quantifying the visual similarity of shape.
TLDR
This work incrementally developed a stimulus space consisting of 360 shapes using a novel image-processing method in conjunction with collected similarity judgments, which is the first Validated Circular Shape space comparable to the commonly used "color wheel", whereby angular distance along a 2D circle is a proxy for visual similarity.

Reflections on Neurofeminism and Intersectionality Using Insights From Psychology
TLDR
Drawing parallels between the fields of psychology and neuroscience, this paper explores the potential benefits and risks of advancing an intersectionality-informed neurofeminism and identifies three main research themes guided by intersectionality. Expand
Ensemble clustering in visual working memory biases location memories and reduces the Weber noise of relative positions.
TLDR
The results suggest that clustering improved the fidelity of recall by biasing the recall of locations toward cluster centers to compensate for uncertainty and by reducing the magnitude of encoded relative distances. Expand

An ‘other-Race Effect’ for Categorizing Faces by Sex
TLDR
It is shown that under suboptimal viewing conditions, the identification of even the most salient of facial characteristics—face sex—is impaired for other-race faces, suggesting that the nature and diversity of the authors' experience with faces may affect not only the quality of the face representation for later access by recognition processes, but also the efficiency of a perceptual discrimination process.

Identification of own-race and other-race faces: Implications for the representation of race in face space
TLDR
A quantitative model successfully predicted identification performance from the spatial locations of the stimuli and confirmed that own-race (Caucasian) faces were identified more accurately than other-race faces, which were more densely clustered than ownrace faces. Expand
Own- and other-race categorization of faces by race, gender, and age
TLDR
Data suggest that determining the race of a face is not imposed as a first step in face processing, preempting the perception of other category-defining physiognomic characteristics. Expand
Physical and Psychological Representations of Faces: Evidence From Morphing
Models of face recognition and classification often adopt a framework in which faces are represented as points in a multidimensional space. This psychological face space organizes the faces accordingExpand
Categorical perception of gender: No evidence for unfamiliar faces
We investigated whether male and female faces are discrete categories at the perceptual level. We created artificial gender continua between male and female faces using a 3D-morphing algorithm andExpand
Who are you looking at? The influence of face gender on visual attention and memory for own- and other-race faces
TLDR
It is found that face gender moderates attentional responses to and memory for own- and other-race faces, and even though longer viewing time increased the probability of remembering a face, it did not explain the magnified ORB in memory for female faces. Expand
Categorical perception of facial gender information: Behavioural evidence and the face-space metaphor
Categorization is a fundamental property of the human brain. We used an imagemorphing procedure to investigate the categorical perception of facial gender information. Three experiments, anExpand
Gender is a dimension of face recognition.
TLDR
Early gender categorization of a face during face recognition appears to speed up the comparison process between the perceptual input and the facial representation. Expand
Synthetic faces, face cubes, and the geometry of face space
TLDR
Face cubes are introduced in which the geometric differences between any faces in a four-dimensional face subspace can be precisely determined and provide a useful new quantitative approach to the study of face perception and face space. Expand
Races and faces — a comparison of the responses of Africans and Europeans to faces of the same and different races
There is a popular belief that faces of members of races different from one's own ‘look more alike’ than those of one's own race. Empirical evidence shows that they differ in memorability. TheExpand
