The field of face perception and person recognition has developed rapidly over the past 40 years, and we now have advanced understanding of how human brains process human faces, and the relationships between face processing and the perception of other aspects of the person such as voices and bodies. Despite this increase in knowledge, problems of misidentification continue to arise in criminal and security contexts, and many wider social activities rely on accurate reading of faces from subtle social signals. Recent research has highlighted considerable variability in individual abilities to decipher and recognise faces. For example, much attention has been given to recruiting ‘super’-recognisers who are particularly good at face recognition to assist in the identification of criminals. Can an understanding of individual differences more widely help in the recruitment and/or training of professionals, or in the use of eyewitness testimony? This special topic seeks research papers that investigate the nature of individual differences in face perception and/or person recognition, and which consider theoretical alongside applied implications of their findings.
