Heads of State

The following was posted this morning (02/15/10) on PsychTeacher, the listserv for the Society for the Teaching of Psychology:

"For those of you teaching Cognitive Psych, this link might provide interesting stimulus material for a discussion on feature and structural theories of pattern recognition. It certainly illustrates that facial recognition may be possible even without facial features present (or that hair should be considered a prominent facial feature). "

While the PsychTeacher posting centered on Cognitive Psych, I as a psychology and history major, was excited to see something which could be used in a psychology or US History course.
