Caricaturing as a General Method to Improve Poor Face Recognition: Evidence From Low-Resolution Images, Other-Race Faces, and Older Adults
There are multiple well-established situations in which humans' face recognition performance is poor, including for low-resolution images, other-race faces, and in older adult observers. Here we show that caricaturing faces-that is, exaggerating their appearance away from an average face-can provide a useful applied method for improving face recognition across all these circumstances. We employ a face-name learning task offering a number of methodological advantages (e.g., valid comparison of...[Show more]
