Rather than trying to remember a face in its entirety, researchers say focus on the ears and specific facial markings like freckles, moles, or scars, to help build facial recognition skills.
The fusiform face area, an area of the visual cortex responsible for facial processing, develops much earlier than previously believed.
Researchers report that within the visual processing areas, information about a personally familiar or visually familiar face is shared across the brains of those with the same friends or acquaintances. Additionally, shared information about personally familiar faces extends to areas of the brain implicated in social processing, suggesting there is shared social information across the brain.
A new study reveals sex differences in the way those with alcohol use disorder process facial emotions. Men with AUD showed greater activation in frontal brain areas when processing facial emotions. The increased activation was not seen in women with AUD.
During mealtimes, a toddler's gaze toward either the hands or face has different roles in communication.
A new study questions the theory that adolescents on the autism spectrum have trouble identifying different emotions expressed on the faces of others. The findings revealed adolescents with ASD have similar accuracy, response times, and fixation on facial features as their neurotypical peers when asked to infer mental states from faces.
Researchers look at the myths and the facts about left-handedness.
Children with autism scan the faces of other people differently to neurotypical children. A new eye-tracking technique that uses facial areas of interest could help with the early detection of ASD.
A new study reveals we are consciously aware of and automatically attend to our own face, even when we are not aware of it.
