    Previous studies of changes in women's behavior during the menstrual cycle have offered insight into the motivations underpinning women's preferences for social cues associated with possible direct benefits (e.g., investment, ...
  • Cross-cultural variation in women's preferences for cues to sex- and stress-hormones in the male face 

    Moore, F. R.; Coetzee, V.; Contreras-Garduño, J.; DeBruine, Lisa M.; Kleisner, K.; Krams, I.; Marcinkowska, U.; Nord, A.; Perrett, D. I.; Rantala, M. J.; Schaum, N.; Suzuki, T. N. (Royal Society, 2013-06-23)
    Women in the UK prefer the faces of men with low levels of the stress hormone cortisol, and the relationship is moderated by the sex hormone testosterone. In a Latvian sample, however, women's preferences were not affected ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Facial appearance is a cue to oestrogen levels in women 

    Law Smith, M. J.; Perrett, D. I.; Jones, B. C.; Cornwell, R. E.; Moore, Fhionna R.; Feinberg, D. R.; Boothroyd, Lynda 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 ...
  • Menstrual cycle, pregnancy and oral contraceptive use alter attraction to apparent health in faces 

    Jones, B. C.; Perrett, D. I.; Little, A. C.; Boothroyd, Lynda G.; 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 ...
  • 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, ...
