Face Recognition Experiment


Do the eyes have it? Does the rest of the face matter in face recognition?

The two faces belong to Aishwarya Rai, a famous actress from India, and Audrey Tatou of Amile and The Davinci Code. The eyes of the first of their frames belong to them as well, but each frame that follows has eyes of other famous people.

This experiment is part of a process of determining the boundary between visual illusions that are neurological, and those that are psychological.

So, does changing only the eyes make a big difference?
