Northwestern University researchers have provided new biological evidence suggesting that the brain works differently when memorizing the face of a person from one's own race than when memorizing a face from another race.
There is definitely more than meets the eye where faces are concerned. Researchers are investigating the process of facial recognition, seeking to understand the complexity of what is actually taking place in the brain when one person looks at another.
So a friend, and Psychobabble regular, Matt, has recently co-authored a serendipitous little finding. When two faces are presented side-by-side and flipped through in a series at high-speed they suddenly appear grotesque and disfigured.
