  • Lateral caricatures are transformed faces like caricatures but the transformation is orthogonal (in the face-space, Valentine, 1991) to the direction of caricaturization. It has been reported that lateral caricatures are more difficult to recognize than anti-caricatures (Rhodes & Tremewan, 1994). To investigate this effect, oblique caricatures (transformed obliquely to caricaturing) were generated by morphing between a veridical face and a reference face. Two experiments used a forced-choice… CONTINUE READING
