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.
A new study reveals that, on average, we are able to recognize 5,000 different faces.
Researchers report on how the brain learns to recognize an individual face, regardless of where it appears in different visual locations.
Researchers report developmental prosopagnosia, or face blindness, occurs as the results of neurobiological problems that broadly affect visual recognition.
Using an AI technique called adversarial training, researchers have developed a new algorithm that dynamically disrupts facial recognition systems, which may help to maintain privacy.
A new study reports facial recognition experts perform better with deep convolutional neural networks assisting them in their jobs rather than other humans.
A new study sheds light on the mechanisms behind how humans recognize and distinguish between two types of visual information. The study provides insight into the level of visual processing where pareidolia, the human ability to see faces in inanimate objects, occurs.
Researchers reveal a horse can read and remember people's emotional facial expressions.
Researchers report the amygdala may play a bigger role in facial recognition than previously thought. According to a new study, the amygdala responds more specifically to images of the face than the fusiform face area does.
Study reveals both similarities and differences in how the left and right sides of the brain process semantic memory.
University of Cambridge researchers report sheep can be trained to recognize different faces from photographs and can identify their handler in a photo without prior training.
Whether we are consciously aware of seeing a familiar face and object or not, our brains actively notice. A new study sheds light on the nature of conscious perception.
