Understanding Facial Recognition

New and hopefully improved abstract:

Carrying out seemingly trivial tasks, such as facial recognition, can trigger our minds to perform surprisingly complex procedures. Our objective is to develop a greater understanding of the perceptual, cognitive, and motor skills which are employed in facial recognition. By manipulating photos of faces and tracking how an observer visually assessed a face, we aimed to identify the prominent facial features used in facial recognition, and to discover differences in recognition patterns as a result of variation in familiarity and gender. With a better understanding of the deductive skills that go with the process of facial recognition, we will be capable of assisting in many areas, such as police work (legitimizing eye witness testimonies) and disability assistance (Alzheimer's disease and prosopagnosia).
