Is human face processing a feature- or pattern-based task? Evidence using a unified computational method driven by eye movements

4 Sep 2017Carlos E. ThomazVagner AmaralGilson A. GiraldiDuncan F. GilliesDaniel Rueckert

Research on human face processing using eye movements has provided evidence that we recognize face images successfully focusing our visual attention on a few inner facial regions, mainly on the eyes, nose and mouth. To understand how we accomplish this process of coding high-dimensional faces so efficiently, this paper proposes and implements a multivariate extraction method that combines face images variance with human spatial attention maps modeled as feature- and pattern-based information sources...
