    Viewpoint Dependence in Face Recognition,
    This paper analyzes the problem of face recognition as a cognitive process. Specifically, it studies the influence of the angle from which the face to recognize is observed. Following the examination of studies that considered this problem in the past, two psychophysical experiments are presented that seek to further clarify the problem. It is shown that the subject gives different responses according to target viewpoint, with the surest and most rapid recognition coming from observation of the right-hand side of the face.,
