The human face poses a challenge to engineers, computer scientists, and psychologists alike. This book integrates different contributions by combining detailed review articles with general overviews of the relationship between different kinds of research on faces and contemporary problems in vision and cognition. Theoretical developments in this area are increasingly dependent on computer technology, both because image-processing techniques allow us to display and manipulate faces for experiments in ways that were not feasible with old photographic technology and because theoretical ideas can be expressed and tested more rigorously using computer simulation. The psychological contributions…
