Facing the Other: Novel Theories and Methods in Face Perception Research
by

Publisher: Frontiers Media SA
Number of pages: 371

Description:
We rely heavily on faces during social interactions. Humans possess the ability to recognise thousands of people very quickly and accurately without effort. The serious social difficulties that follow abnormalities of the face recognition system (i.e., prosopagnosia) strongly underline the importance of typical face skills in our everyday life.
