Face Gender Stimuli

The zhao.vres11_faces.zip file contains the facial gender stimuli used in:

Chen Zhao, Peggy Series, Peter J. B. Hancock, and James A. Bednar. Similar neural adaptation mechanisms underlying face gender and tilt aftereffects. Vision Research, 51(18):2021-2030, 2011.

Each set contains PNG-format images generated along an image morph continuum from -2.5 to 2.5, with -1.0 being the average male face and 1.0 being the average female face; see the paper for the full details. Four image morph sequences are included:

original: 125 images created by morphing between and beyond average male and female faces
modified: same as original, but 501 images, with forced vertical symmetry and balanced colors
80: same as modified, but based on 80% of the faces
20: same as modified, based on remaining 20% of the faces

These images may be used freely in any scientific research project or publication, as long as they are properly attributed.
