Chambers Street, Edinburgh
(Use Lothian Street entrance)
On Friday 11th April 2003, at 7 pm
Prof. Bruce has a distinguished academic record and in 2001 she was awarded the British Psychological Society Book Award with Andy Young (York), for their 1998 book, published by Oxford University Press, "In the eye of the beholder: The science of face perception", written to accompany a successful exhibition in Edinburgh at the Scottish National Portrait Gallery.
In her lecture, Prof. Bruce asks the question, why are faces so important to being human? She will explore face and identity using examples from the worlds of science and the arts. She will investigate the diverse social signals that faces send, focussing particularly on how faces convey information about personal identity.
