Irons, Jessica; McKone, Elinor; Dumbleton, Rachael; Barnes, Nick; He, Xuming; Provis, Jan; Ivanovici, Callin; Kwa, Ningsi


Damage to central vision, of which age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the most common cause, leaves patients with only blurred peripheral vision. Previous approaches to improving face recognition in AMD have employed image manipulations designed to enhance early-stage visual processing (e.g., magnification, increased HSF contrast). Here, we argue that further improvement may be possible by targeting known properties of mid- and/or high-level face processing. We enhance identity-related...[Show more]
