FACES is a set of images of naturalistic faces of 171 younger (n = 58), middle-aged (n = 56), and older (n = 57) women and men displaying each of six facial expressions: neutrality, sadness, disgust, fear, anger, and happiness. It comprises two sets of pictures per person and per facial expression, resulting in a total of 2,052 images.

It was developed between 2005 and 2007 by Ulman Lindenberger, Natalie Ebner, and Michaela Riediger at the Center for Lifespan Psychology, Max Planck Institute for Human Development, Berlin, Germany.

This page gives a short overview of all FACES solution functionalities. For further support, please check our support page.
