David Perrett studies how we recognise facial attributes and understand actions of others. Current projects include the nature of cues in the face to attractiveness and health; the impact of childhood, parental relationships and development across puberty on mate choice in adulthood; attraction to voice and to pheromones; decoding emotional expression and deception; sharing of attention; the role of expectations and cross modal integration in understanding actions; and the use of computer graphics to enhance recognition.
