Carleton Connects: Professor Seth Greenberg
Cognitive psychologists understand that our recognition of patterns (perceptions) in the world in which we live are a function not only of the information available in the external world, but processes, biases, goals and the stored information that already occupies our minds. Recognition of faces is one important example of how processing a visual pattern is subject to internal goals, biases, and expectations. Join Carleton Connects as we join Professor Seth Greenberg, Psychology to present "Let's Face It: Not all Faces Are Treated Equally". He will examine research that looks at what influences face recognition and consider practical implications of these discoveries.
