  • 7. Facial Recognition<br />
  • 8. Bruce and Young (1998)<br />Suggested that there were three separate stages in the process of looking at a face and remembering it.<br />
  • 9. Stage 1<br />We do not see the whole face. We see a set of individual features: eyes, mouth, hairline, nose and everything else that makes up a face, separately. From someone’s eyes or mouth we can tell if they are happy or sad.<br />
  • 10.
  • 11. Stage 2<br />We put all the parts together to form a whole face.<br />This gives us the ‘mental picture’ of the faces we are looking at.<br />
  • 12.
  • 13.
  • 14. Stage 3<br />We use this mental picture where we ‘look up’ the face in our memory<br />This lets us know whether we have seen the person before or not.<br />
  • 15. Cognitive processes<br />Where we store all sorts of useful information about faces.<br />If someone smiles – happy<br />If someone cries – sad<br />David Beckham in Morrison's – unlikely!<br />
  • 16. Bruce and Young warned that facial processing is not just about recognising a face!<br />Its also about emotion of the face<br />Age of the person<br />Using a ‘photo fit’ may not be helpful because it is hard to remember just individual features of a face<br />Its how the features work together that help us remember<br />
