  • Comparing offenders against women and offenders against children on treatment outcome in offenders with intellectual disability 

    Lindsay, William R.; Michie, Amanda M.; Steptoe, Lesley; Moore, Fhionna R.; Haut, Fabian (Wiley-Blackwell, 2011-07)
    Background Several studies have shown the positive effects of sex offender treatment for men with intellectual disabilities who have perpetrated sex offences or inappropriate sexual behaviour. The present study investigates ...
  • Cues to sex- and stress-hormones in the human male face: functions of glucocorticoids in the immunocompetence handicap hypothesis 

    Moore, Fhionna R.; Al Dujaili, E. A. S.; Cornwell, R. E.; Law Smith, M. J.; Lawson, J. F.; Sharp, M.; Perrett, D. I. (Elsevier, 2011-08)
    The stress-linked version of the immunocompetence handicap hypothesis has been proposed to account for inconsistencies in relationships between testosterone and immune response. The model has received some support from ...
  • The effects of female control of resources on sex-differentiated mate preferences 

    Moore, Fhionna R.; Cassidy, Clare; Smith, Miriam Jane Law; Perrett, David Ian (Elsevier, 2006-05)
    A number of sex differences in mate preferences have been reported across cultures. Women prefer partners who are older than them whereas men prefer partners who are younger than them. Women have stronger preferences for ...
  • Evidence for the stress-linked immunocompetence handicap hypothesis in human male faces 

    Moore, Fhionna R.; Cornwell, R. E.; Law Smith, M. J.; Al Dujaili, E. A. S.; Sharp, M.; Perrett, D. I. (The Royal Society, 2011-03)
    The stress-linked immunocompetence handicap hypothesis (SL-ICHH) of sexual selection incorporates a role of the stress hormone corticosterone (C; cortisol in humans) in relationships between testosterone (T), immunity and ...
  • Evidence for the stress-linked immunocompetence handicap hypothesis in humans 

    Rantala, Markus J.; Moore, Fhionna R.; Skrinda, Ilona; Krama, Tatjana; Kivleniece, Inese; Kecko, Sanita; Krams, Indrikis (Nature Publishing Group, 2012-02-21)
    Secondary sexual traits that develop under the action of testosterone, such as masculine human male facial characteristics, have been proposed to signal the strength of the immune system due to the sex hormone's immunosuppressive ...
  • An experimental manipulation of female perceptions of the status of women: effects on mate preferences 

    Moore, Fhionna R.; Cassidy, C. (Akadémiai Kiadó, 2010-09)
    We tested the relationships between female status and mate preferences demonstrated in previous correlational studies in an experimental manipulation of female perceptions of the status of women. To achieve this, 147 female ...
  • Facial appearance is a cue to oestrogen levels in women 

    Smith, M. J. Law; Perrett, D. I.; Jones, B. C.; Cornwell, R. E.; Moore, Fhionna R.; Feinberg, D. R.; Boothroyd, L. G.; Durrani, S. J.; Stirrat, M. R.; Whiten, S.; Pitman, R. M.; Hillier, S. G. (The Royal Society, 2006-01)
    Although many accounts of facial attractiveness propose that femininity in women's faces indicates high levels of oestrogen, there is little empirical evidence in support of this assumption. Here, we used assays for urinary ...
  • Female reproductive strategy predicts preferences for sexual dimorphism in male faces 

    Moore, Fhionna R.; Law Smith, Miriam; Cassidy, Clare; Perrett, David (Akadémiai Kiadó, 2009-09)
    The aim of the current studies was to test an assumption that variation in female preferences for sexually dimorphic male facial characteristics reflects strategic optimisation of investment in offspring. A negative ...
  • Female status predicts female mate preferences across nonindustrial societies 

    Moore, Fhionna R.; Cassidy, Clare (SAGE Publications, 2007)
    Most studies demonstrating the contribution of economic constraints on women to sex differences in mate preferences have used samples from postindustrial societies with similar social structures. The authors investigate ...
  • Menstrual cycle, pregnancy and oral contraceptive use alter attraction to apparent health in faces 

    Jones, B. C.; Perrett, D. I.; Little, A. C.; Boothroyd, L.; Cornwell, R. E.; Feinberg, D. R.; Tiddeman, B. P.; Whiten, S.; Pitman, R. M.; Hillier, S. G.; Burt, D. M.; Stirrat, M. R.; Law Smith, M. J.; Moore, Fhionna R. (The Royal Society, 2005-02)
    Previous studies demonstrating changes in women's face preferences have emphasized increased attraction to cues to possible indirect benefits (e.g. heritable immunity to infection) that coincides with periods of high ...
  • Menstrual cycle, trait estrogen level, and masculinity preferences in the human voice 

    Feinberg, D. R.; Jones, B. C.; Law Smith, M. J.; Moore, Fhionna R.; DeBruine, Lisa M.; Cornwell, R. E.; Hillier, S. G.; Perrett, D. I. (Elsevier, 2006-02)
    Men with low testosterone (feminine men) invest in relationships and offspring more than men with high testosterone (masculine men). Women’s attraction to testosterone dependent traits (e.g. masculine face shape) is ...
  • Observer perception of artistically manipulated emotional facial expression animations 

    Sloan, Robin J. S.; Robinson, Brian; Scott-Brown, Kenneth C.; Moore, Fhionna R.; Cook, Malcolm (IASTED and ACTA Press, 2010-02-17)
    While we know quite a lot about emotional facial expressions, we know relatively little about the temporal development of dynamic expressions. In order to study expressions, most researchers have made use of acted, posed, ...
  • A phenomenological study of facial expression animation 

    Sloan, Robin J. S.; Robinson, Brian; Moore, Fhionna R.; Scott-Brown, Kenneth C.; Cook, Malcolm (British Computer Society, 2011-07-06)

    Sloan, Robin J. S.; Robinson, Brian; Scott-Brown, Kenneth C.; Moore, Fhionna R.; Cook, Malcolm (ACM, 2010-10-21)
  • Sexual dimorphism in the female face is a cue to health and social status but not age 

    Moore, Fhionna R.; Law Smith, M. J.; Taylor, V.; Perrett, D. I. (Elsevier, 2011-05)
    The link between femininity and attractiveness in the female face is attributed to the value placed on fertility in attractiveness judgements of women. This is supported by relationships between femininity, health and age, ...
  • The voice and face of woman: one ornament that signals quality? 

    Feinberg, David R.; Jones, Benedict C.; DeBruine, Lisa M.; Moore, Fhionna R.; Law Smith, Miriam J.; Cornwell, R. Elisabeth; Tiddeman, Bernard P.; Boothroyd, Lynda G.; Perrett, David I. (Elsevier, 2005-09)
    The attractiveness of women's faces, voices, bodies, and odors appear to be interrelated, suggesting that they reflect a common trait such as femininity. We invoked novel approaches to test the interrelationships between ...
  • Women's physical and psychological condition independently predict their preference for apparent health in faces 

    Jones, Benedict Christopher; Little, Anthony C.; Boothroyd, Lynda; Feinberg, David R.; Cornwell, R. Elisabeth; DeBruine, Lisa M.; Roberts, S. Craig; Penton-Voak, Ian S.; Law Smith, Miriam J.; Moore, Fhionna R.; Davis, Hasker P.; Perrett, David I. (Elsevier, 2005-11)
    Physical condition (e.g., health, fertility) influences female mate preferences in many species, with females in good condition preferring "higher quality" (e.g., healthier) mates. In humans, condition may comprise both ...
