How do we form split-second perceptions of other people?

Jon Freeman

Jon Freeman is Associate Professor of Psychology and Neural Science at New York University and director of the Social Cognitive & Neural Sciences Lab. His research focuses on how we perceive other people, such as how we use facial cues to categorize others into social groups, perceive their emotion, or infer their personality. His work examines the cognitive and neural mechanisms that underlie person perception, and the interplay of social, emotional, and visual processes in perceptual and interpersonal decisions. He takes an integrative and multi-level approach in exploring these questions using several techniques, including neuroimaging, computational modeling, and behavioral paradigms. He is also the developer of the data collection and analysis software, MouseTracker. More »
