The 'Generative Model of 3D Face Identity' is able to reconstruct facial models using information stored in a person's brain when recalling the familiar face of another person.
Adults who played Pokemon video games as children had preferential activation in the visual system for Pokemon character, researchers report. The finding shed light on the development of the visual system and categorization in the brain.
The connectivity between the face processing network and other networks associated with the processing of visual, social and auditory cues help predict how well we remember a familiar face.
Acute exercise in older adults has a positive impact on brain regions associated with memory and recall. Older adults who engaged in acute exercise had greater activation in the temporal gyrus, fusiform gyrus and hippocampus, resulting in increased semantic memory activation.
Researchers report sensitivity to anger cues improve during adolescence, but decreases as we age. However, the ability to detect happy cues remains the same, regardless of age.
A new study reveals we are consciously aware of and automatically attend to our own face, even when we are not aware of it.
Researchers report small, but deliberate changes in a person's facial appearance are effective in identity deception.
Researchers answer the questions of whether artificial intelligence is better at facial recognization than humans. The study found both humans and deep learning algorithms perform with similar levels of accuracy when identifying faces. However, when AI technology is combined with human intelligence, the accuracy attainment levels shot up and better results were achieved than when two facial examiners worked together.
The common belief that we are better at remembering faces over names may not be true. Researchers report we are actually better at remembering a person's name than we are faces.
Researchers report facial recognition varies by where they appear in the visual field, and this variability is reduces through learning familiar faces via social interactions. The study reports repeated social interactions tune visual neurons in the face processing network to enable consistent and rapid rapid recognition of familiar faces.
