Memory for Faces Study

In our everyday lives, we encounter numerous people in various settings. Sometimes we can recognize a person we have seen before, such as recognizing an old classmate while you are shopping at the mall. Other times, we feel that we know a person, but we do not know where we’ve seen them before. This study tests these recognition memory processes for faces through a one-hour online computer task. We are looking for participants aged 18-30 or 60-85, who are primarily English speakers. If you are interested, please contact Evi Myftaraj at
