Identifying Novel Markers of

Concealed Face Recognition

Our project develops new ways to detect recognition of familiar faces when people deny recognition of someone they know.

We combine the Concealed Information Test (CIT) with theoretical models of familiar and unfamiliar face recognition to create novel and simple techniques that have the potential for use in a wide range of security settings.

To realise the full potential of our research we communicate with potential end-users:

*The Scottish Police (SIPR)*

*The Met Police*

*The Home Office Centre for Applied Science and Technology (CAST)*

*The National Research Institute of Police Science (NRIPS), Japan*

*Japanese researchers and police polygraphers, who use the CITs in daily field practice*

The conface project is funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ES/R008744/1) for 3 years commencing July 2018.

Previous funding was received from the University of Stirling Faculty of Natural Sciences, The British Psychological Society and Brain.
