This chapter discusses computer vision models for the processing of dynamic faces along with an analysis of computational neurobiological models for the recognition and detection of static faces and dynamic body stimuli. It examines a physiologically plausible core architecture that reaches performance levels for the recognition of shapes and motion patterns which are competitive with a state-of-the-art computer vision system. The chapter emphasizes that the availability of conclusive and constraining experimental data will determine the development of useful models for the recognition of dynamic faces. It concludes that the integration of different experimental methods, including psychophysics and single-cell physiology, is still required to answer several open questions related to the processing of static and dynamic faces.

Keywords:   computational neurobiological models, psychophysics, single-cell physiology, dynamic faces, body stimuli
