About the Face Database

The Center for Vital Longevity Face Database was created at the University of Michigan by Meredith Minear and Denise Park. Access to the database is restricted to academic researchers.

About stimuli coding

Although some datasets (e.g., Kristen Kennedy's normed faces) include datasheets, for most sets all demographic information is encoded in the image filenames. For additional information, please contact us.
