In the World Library of Psychologists series, international experts themselves present career-long collections of what they judge to be their finest pieces - extracts from books, key articles, salient research findings, and their major practical theoretical contributions.
Andy Young has an international reputation as an eminent scholar and pioneer in the field of face perception. This selection brings together some of his best work over the last thirty years.
A specially written introduction gives an overview of his career and contextualises the selection in relation to changes in the field during this time. The first section on 'Theoretical Perspectives' will explain the background to research on facial expression and the types of question that have been addressed. These include the relation between perception of facial identity and expression, how expressions are perceptually represented, and multimodal contributions to interpreting other people's emotions. The second section 'Experimental Approaches' will explain the key techniques and tests of important theoretical questions.The next part will give examples of selective impairments affecting fear or disgust recognition from face and voice, and cases with more general problems in recognising emotion. These offer important evidence for the resolution of theoretical questions raised in Part 1. The fourth section looks at a combination of functional brain imaging and experimental methods to investigate the neural representation of facial expression. Finally, the last part will take methods from the other parts of the book and apply them to investigating some of the factors that may underlie different types of clinical or everyday problem and bringing out potential implications for treatment.
The book enables the reader to trace developments in facial expression recognition over the last thirty years. It will appeal to anyone with interests in these areas as well as being an invaluable resource for graduate and advanced undergraduate courses in face perception or visual cognition.
This book is a practical guide to the field of biomedical signal processing and pattern recognition. The authors provide a self-contained volume that will address all the main issues -- e.g., signal peculiarities, popular algorithms, key application examples, etc. -- as well as provide an overview of common traps and mistakes and how to avoid them. The book makes extensive use of pseudo-code and code samples. It discusses available open source toolboxes as well. This book will the non-specilist up to speed with regard to relevant signal processing and pattern recognition. More importantly, it will enable the reader to either program the necessary algorithms or to modify existing open source libraries. This book fills a gap in several new interdisciplinary areas, such as human-machine interaction, affective computing, and computer games, that have as a common task the processing and analysis of biomedical data. Yet, it is also a valuable tool for students at the intermediate and advanced levels in more traditional biomedical pattern recognition.
Global justice is of every increasing importance in the contemporary political world. This volume brings a hitherto overlooked perspective - the politics of recognition - to bear on this idea. It considers how discussion of each of these illuminates the problems posed by the other, thus addressing an issue of vital concern for the years to come.
