We are interested in whether high levels of contact and interest in specific species or breeds of animal makes someone better at the recognition of faces of that species. Additionally, we are interested in whether individual differences in human face recognition ability transfers to the ability to recognise the faces and species of other animals.
If you are highly familiar with Birds, Chimps/Primates or Dogs (particularly pugs and huskies) and would like to know whether you are better than your fellow enthusiasts at recognising your favourite animal then this is the test for you.
In this test you will be asked to recognise faces of chimps, faces of dogs, faces of humans, and species of bird.
Participation enters you into a prize draw for a £20 Amazon voucher.
