Overview

Face and Mind provides an excellent summary of the most important theoretical and empirical work done on face perception in recent years. This collection of seminal research and review papers examines the question of how faces are special, in terms of their social, biological, and theoretical roles, and seeks to determine what our understanding of the face can tell us about the human brain. The book addresses a wide range of topics, including how the mind processes, remembers, and recalls different faces; covert face recognition; faces in social and biological contexts; errors in everyday face recognition; delusional misidentifications; and dissociable deficits after brain injury, among others. This fascinating book will be of interest to researchers, academics, and students in psychology, neuropsychology, and cognitive science.
