Book Description:
Face processing is now a mainstream, multi-faceted and global research field in psychology, and it is growing exponentially. The volume of emerging research necessitates continuous efforts to update our overall understanding of current theory. This book brings together contributions from face processing researchers around the world to provide up-to-date reviews of topics of great current interest. The book is partitioned to give insight into face processing systems, such as those employed to verify a person’s identity in applied security settings, the state-of-the-art systems utilized for the construction of criminal facial composites in police investigations, and the cognitive systems for the recognition of familiar faces and bodies; disorders, focusing on people with extremely high and extremely poor face processing ability, as well as face processing in autism spectrum disorder; and cultural differences, including the development of perceptual and social race biases, the impact of cultural headdress traditions and reading directions on face perception, cultural similarities and differences in the processing of facial expressions, as well as a broader look at ethnicity, gender and age biases in face processing. The outcome is a book that provides diverse, interesting, useful and thought-provoking chapters, covering a range of topics of current theoretical and applied importance, authored by a combination of internationally renowned and exciting upcoming researchers.

Book Reviews

“An excellent review of recent developments in the fast moving field of face processing. It is impressive both in its breath and its insights.” - Dr. Michael Lewis, Reader in Psychology, Cardiff University, Wales

"This book provides an engaging and comprehensive review of the mechanisms behind face processing, how such systems are affected by cultural differences and the selective enhancement and disruption of face processing. Written by world leading experts, it is an enjoyable read that will appeal to both those new to the field and individuals already familiar with the area." - Dr. Chris Longmore, Lecturer in Psychology, Plymouth University, England

“This provides excellent, comprehensive and clearly written coverage of the key issues in face perception, including forensic eyewitness identification, face learning and disorders of face processing. It also offers a timely consideration of the influence of culture and the role of individual differences in face processing. It should be of great interest to face perception researchers and their students.” - Dr. Lesley Calderwood, Lecturer in Psychology, University of the West of Scotland

"Faces are fascinating, and so is this book. I am genuinely excited by this book! This book brings together the very latest thinking in the field of face perception from leading researchers around the world. A broad array of topics is included, addressing topics such as how people recognize familiar and unfamiliar faces (and bodies); why some people are better, or worse, than others at recognizing faces; and cultural differences that affect facial identity and emotion recognition. It also comprehensively examines more applied questions, such as how to identify criminals and factor affecting eyewitness memory, in both children and adults." - Dr. Romina Palermo, Associate Professor in Psychology, The University of Western Australia
