This seminar examines the human face as a biological structure that imparts social information. We will study the human face for what it tells us about identity, social categories, emotional states, attractiveness, deception, health, and more. We will address questions such as: How accurate are we at judging truthfulness, anger, and health based solely on facial information? Can we be trained to become better judges of the face? What would it be like to be unable to recognize faces? What are the implications of technology that recognizes faces? Why is the Mona Lisa smiling? The face will be examined from a variety of perspectives including those of psychology, neuroscience, biometrics, medicine, and art in order to examine what different disciplines find in the face. The kinds of evidence collected will be evaluated. The implications of making judgments of various types from the face will be discussed. We will read a variety of materials, but empirical research articles will be emphasized.
