The variation among faces can be partitioned into two sources: (a) shape and (b) surface reflectance. To compare the utility of shape and reflectance for face recognition, we created two sets of faces, with individual exemplars differing only by shape in one set and only by reflectance in the other set. Grayscale and full color versions of the stimuli were used in separate experiments; the physical variation between exemplars was equated across the two sets with the grayscale but not the full… CONTINUE READING
