Contains data from two tests of face memory (one with Caucasian faces; one with Chinese faces) and four tests of face matching (Caucasian, Asian, Middle Eastern/Arab, and Black faces).
Data for memory tests is percent correct. Data for matching tests is presented as percent hits (correctly identifying matches); percent CRs (correctly rejecting incorrect matches), percent overall accuracy, and the signal detection measures A and b (sensitivity and bias, respectively).
Data is presented for three groups of participants: Caucasian "super-recognisers" (who show extraordinary face recognition abilities); Caucasian typical perceivers; Asian typical perceivers (for Caucasian and Asian memory and matching tests only).
