Richard Russell, Assistant Professor of Psychology, presented a poster titled "The use of
shape and pigmentation information across the spectrum of face recognition ability" at the Annual
Meeting of the Vision Sciences Society, Naples, FL, May 2009. The authors presented work
addressing the hypothesis that the ability to perceive certain low-level visual features underlies
face recognition ability. The poster was co-authored by G. Chatterjee and K. Nakayama. The
same authors presented a poster titled "Non-face visual memory impairments in developmental
prosopagnosia" at the Naples conference. This poster presented evidence supporting the notion
that general visual memory ability predicts face memory ability.
