Abstract
This paper analyzes the merits of two biologically-inspired face recognition models, eigenfaces and graph-matching, in the context of related neurophysiological and psychophysical data. Given the ambiguity of current biological evidence, a more promising direction for future face recognition research is in the development of models that conform more closely to human perception of facial similarity.
