Saccades and smooth pursuit eye movements trigger equivalent gaze-cued orienting effects

Journal Article
Langton, S. R., McIntyre, A. H., Hancock, P. J., & Leder, H. (2018)
Saccades and smooth pursuit eye movements trigger equivalent gaze-cued orienting effects. Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology, 17470218.2017.1. https://doi.org/10.1080/17470218.2017.1362703
Research has established that a perceived eye gaze produces a concomitant shift in a viewer’s spatial attention in the direction of that gaze. The two experiments reported her...

Holistic face processing can inhibit recognition of forensic facial composites.

Journal Article
Hancock, P. J. B., Frowd, C. D., Langton, S. R. H., & McIntyre, A. H. (2016)
Holistic face processing can inhibit recognition of forensic facial composites. Law and Human Behavior, 40(2), 128-135. https://doi.org/10.1037/lhb0000160
Facial composite systems help eyewitnesses to show the appearance of criminals. However, likenesses created by unfamiliar witnesses will not be completely accurate, and peopl...

Developmentally distinct gaze processing systems: Luminance versus geometric cues.

Journal Article
Doherty, M. J., McIntyre, A. H., & Langton, S. R. (2015)
Developmentally distinct gaze processing systems: Luminance versus geometric cues. Cognition, 137, 72-80. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.cognition.2015.01.001
Two experiments examined how the different cues to gaze direction contribute to children’s abilities to follow and make explicit judgements about gaze. In each study participa...

Improving Discrimination and Face Matching with Caricature: Improving face matching with caricature

Journal Article
McIntyre, A. H., Hancock, P. J. B., Kittler, J., & Langton, S. R. H. (2013)
