Humans typically have a remarkable memory for faces. Nonetheless, in some cases they can be fooled. Experiments described in this paper provide new evidence for an effect in which observers falsely "recognize" a face that they have never seen before. The face is a chimera (prototype) built from parts extracted from previously viewed faces. It is known that faces of this kind can be confused with truly familiar faces, a result referred to as the prototype effect. However, recent studies have… CONTINUE READING
