There are many ways to assess face perception skills. In this study, we describe a novel task battery FEAST Facial Expressive Action Stimulus Test developed to test recognition of identity and expressions of human faces as well as stimulus control categories. The FEAST consists of a neutral and emotional face memory task, a face and shoe identity matching task, a face and house part-to-whole matching task, and a human and animal facial expression matching task. The identity and part-to-whole matching tasks contain both upright and inverted conditions. The results provide reference data of a healthy sample of controls in two age groups for future users of the FEAST. Face recognition is one of the most ubiquitous skills.
Caroline Miller. This is the first in a series of articles about non-verbal learning disorder developed in collaboration with Winston Preparatory School , a New York area school that has taken a leading role in working with students with the disorder. When we think of learning disorders, we tend to think of dyslexia and other disorders involving language—that is, kids who have trouble decoding language and learning to read. Kids who have NLD do not have trouble decoding language, reading, or learning information in a rote way. Physical coordination, social interaction , problem solving, organizing thoughts, planning—all these things can be challenging. They seem very different, but the unifying theme is that each requires the ability to recognize patterns or concepts and then apply them to new situations. There are five areas in which children with NLD show weakness.
Aureus 3D facial recognition software is highly efficient at finding and matching faces. CyberExtruder provides access to the best facial recognition testing information possible. For more than two decades NIST has been investigating the performance of different biometric technologies.
People with Alzheimer's disease develop problems in recognizing familiar faces. It has been thought that this is just part of their general impairment, but a new study indicates that a specific, face-related impairment develops early in the disease. This impairment has to do with the recognition of a face as a whole.
