Facial Motion and Facial Form

Facial Motion and Facial Form

(p.67) 5 Facial Motion and Facial Form
Dynamic Faces

The MIT Press

The interaction between facial motion and facial form is examined in this chapter. Several studies focusing on the relative contribution of facial motion and facial form, including one investigating how facial motion and facial form can be combined by the human face recognition system by using motion capture and computer animation techniques, are also discussed. These studies found that the identity judgments of observers about facial identity are biased by the non-rigid facial motion in the presence of cues to facial form, and do not explain if seeing faces in motion provides any accurate information about facial form. They support the integration of facial form and motion information as a combination of facial forms. Facial motion is used by observers when making judgments regarding facial resemblance.
