Past and present research
Most of our work has been on characterizing the perceptual, cognitive, and neural basis of judgments from facial appearance. For a recent review of some of this work, see Todorov & Oh (2021). One of the important contributions of the lab was to introduce data-driven computational methods for visualizing the perceptual basis of social judgments from faces. See demonstrations for some of the resulting models of judgments. Recently, using generative adversarial networks we have built models capable of generating and manipulating the appearance of hyper-realistic faces.
