📒A Light In The Attic ✍ Christine E. Looser
📝A Light in the Attic Book Synopsis : At one level of analysis a face is merely a visual object; a pattern of light cast across the retina that can be described in terms of its lines, colors, and textures. However, these basic features give rise to the recognition that the face belongs to another living being endowed with the potential for thoughts, feelings, actions and interactions. It is for this reason that faces are exceptionally salient. Accordingly, face perception has been extensively studied, but much of this work has compared human faces to non-face stimuli (e.g., houses, shoes, etc.), which differ in both form (faces have a distinct configuration) and animacy (faces hold cues to life and mind). As a consequence, it is unclear which of these findings reflect the processing of form, the prosessing of animacy, or both. In service of better understanding how the perception of a face drives the recognition of a mind, this dissertation utilized two types of comparisons. First, human faces were compared to object faces that are recognizably face-like but do not possess mental states (e.g. statues, mannequins); this comparison examined how faces with minds are processed as distinct from faces without minds. Second, to investigate the facial cues that convey that a mind is attending and worthy of social-cognitive resources, we compared images of human faces that were mentally engaged to images of faces that were unengaged. Across all studies, an overarching theme emerged in which there are two stages of face perception: rapid, indiscriminate face detection followed by a secondary stage that scrutinizes faces for the presence of mind. This research elucidates how face perception and mind perception interact, helping people to efficiently navigate their social world.

📒The Attic ✍ Fran Caldwell
📝The Attic Book Synopsis : Young Toronto graphic artist Strachan (pronounced 'Strawn' per the Gaelic) Marshall is a loner and could be considered something of a loser. Things change dramatically when she is compelled to check out an attic in an eerie, derelict building, and finds herself feverishly "transcribing" the journal of Celia, a young Englishwoman from decades earlier, who relates her experiences in war-torn Britain. Naturally, practical Strachan refuses to coin the word "ghost." The whole thing is an exciting adventure. When she produces a poignant memoir, which focuses on the apparently doomed affair between Celia, a WAAF (Women's Auxiliary Air Force), and Alex, an RAF serviceman, with detailed descriptions of the era which appear to be as accurate as if Strachan had lived through it herself, people are bound to have questions. Telling the truth would mark Strachan as psychotic, so she lies, saying she did a lot of research. She didn't. Only those closest to her know about The Attic.
