British Journal of Psychology Face matching with static images is error-prone. Interactive 3D viewing significantly enhances accuracy across ’typical’ and ‘superior’ recognizers. By providing structural facial details, this method supports better performance and is promising for forensic and security applications.
Nature Scientific Reports In a study on eyewitness identification, matching the angle of perpetrator’s viewing during encoding and testing improved recall. The results underscore the encoding specificity principle and show individuals seek to match study and test environments to aid memory.
American Psychologist Eyewitness IDs can be flawed. We introduced an interactive lineup, allowing witnesses to view faces from multiple angles. Testing with 8,700+ participants, this method outperformed traditional static photo lineups in accuracy, irrespective of racial/ethnic differences.
Evolution and Human Behaviour Study suggests fertile women prefer masculine men, shown in a quiz-show experiment where host masculinity varied. Fertile women showed increased romantic attraction and faster responses to masculine hosts, supporting Gangestad and Thornhill’s hypothesis.
