On Monday the 17th of October Dr. Rob Jenkins hosted a visit from Dr. Jonathon Phillips of the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology. Jonathon is a specialist in automatic face recognition systems, but also works closely with psychologists on human face recognition research.

We are looking forward to welcoming distinguished face researcher Professor Cathy Mondloch from Brock University in Canada.
Cathy will give a seminar on Monday 31 October at 4.00 in B020, with the title:
“Here’s looking at you?: Experience influences adults’ and children’s ability to learn new facial identities”
On the 10th/11th of October we were delighted to host Professor Stefan Schweinberger and to hear about his current research.
On the 2nd and 3rd of May 2016, the lab was delighted to host Professor Jim Haxby and Professor Ida Gobbini from The Haxby Lab at Dartmouth College, New Hampshire, USA.
During their visit, both Jim and Ida gave fascinating departmental talks entitled, "A common, high-dimensional model of representational spaces in human cortex” (Jim), and "Mechanisms for recognition of familiar faces" (Ida)
