*  Investigating human's face recognition has been becoming big issue in the perception research. Many perception researches are studying how human perceive and recognize environment and objects around us. But than any other objects, human have much better discriminating performance about face. When we know the reason we are very good at recognizing faces, maybe we can solve generic features which is helpful to know how we perceive and recognize objects. At this point many scientist have enthusiastic attitude on the face study.    *  And for another reason, the face research is very interesting. What defines our identity from for observers? The most reliable feature to recognize each identity is the face. If you have seen the famous movie 'Face off', you can remember the reason why people of the film mistook the identity of the two people which have changed face each other. Like this the face is so important to know who someone is. Do the day all of face recognition has been revealed come, we can also know why some faces are so charming or trustworthy or looking clever.    * My experiment is using summary statistics to know the face perception in the low level visual system. My experiment which is undergoing can not prove all of fascinating things written down above. But it is also very meaningful research to make a big step of face research.
