  • 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 ...
  • 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 that androstadienone, a putative human chemosignal, modulates women’s attributions of men’s attractiveness 

    Saxton, Tamsin K.; Lyndon, Anna; Little, Anthony C.; Roberts, S. Craig (Elsevier, 2008-11)
    Considerable research effort has focused on whether specific compounds found within human body odor influence the behavior or physiology of other individuals. The most intensively studied is 4,16-androstadien-3-one, a ...
  • Experimental evidence that women speak in a higher voice pitch to men they find attractive 

    Fraccaro, Paul J.; Jones, Benedict C.; Vukovic, Jovana; Smith, Finlay G.; Watkins, Christopher D.; Feinberg, David R.; Little, Anthony C.; DeBruine, Lisa M. (Akadémiai Kiadó, 2011-03)
    Although humans can raise and lower their voice pitch, it is not known whether such alterations can function to increase the likelihood of attracting preferred mates. Because men find higher-pitched women’s voices more ...
  • Facial masculinity is a cue to women’s dominance 

    Quist, Michelle C.; Watkins, Christopher D.; Smith, Finlay G.; DeBruine, Lisa M.; Jones, Benedict C. (Elsevier, 2011-05)
    Although there is compelling evidence for associations between facial masculinity and indices of dominance in men, comparatively few studies have tested for corresponding associations in women. Here we found that (1) ratings ...
  • 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 ...
  • Trade-offs between markers of absolute and relative quality in human facial preferences 

    Saxton, Tamsin K.; Little, Anthony C.; Rowland, Hannah M.; Gao, Ting; Roberts, S. Craig (Oxford University Press, 2009)
    Individuals are attuned to cues of quality in potential mates. Mate quality is assessed on both an absolute scale, independent of the observer, and also on a relative scale, dependent on attributes of the observer. Much ...
  • Using motion-sensing remote controls with older adults 

    von Bruhn Hinné, Thomas; Keates, Simeon (Springer Verlag, 2011)
    This paper examines how motion sensitive remote control devices can improve the usability of television sets for older adults. It investigates the use of a pointing remote control where the actions are read and selected ...
  • 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 preferences for masculinity in male faces are highest during reproductive age range and lower around puberty and post-menopause 

    Little, Anthony C.; Saxton, Tamsin K.; Roberts, S. Craig; Jones, Benedict C.; DeBruine, Lisa M.; Vukovic, Jovana; Perrett, David I.; Feinberg, David R.; Chenore, Todd (Elsevier, 2010-07)
    Masculinity in male faces is thought to be a sign of mate quality and is associated with measures of long-term health. Previous studies have demonstrated that women's masculinity preferences change across the menstrual ...
