  • Age, puberty and attractiveness judgments in adolescents 

    Saxton, Tamsin K.; Kohoutova, Dagmar; Roberts, S. Craig; Jones, Benedict C.; DeBruine, Lisa M.; Havlicek, Jan (Elsevier, 2010-12)
    Previous work has suggested that judgments of the attractiveness of some facial and vocal features change during adolescence. Here, over 70 Czech adolescents aged 12–14 made forced-choice attractiveness judgments on ...
  • 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 ...
  • Face and voice attractiveness judgments change during adolescence 

    Saxton, Tamsin K.; DeBruine, Lisa M.; Jones, Benedict C.; Little, Anthony C.; Roberts, S. Craig (Elsevier, 2009-11)
    Attractiveness judgments are thought to underpin adaptive mate choice decisions. We investigated how these judgments change during adolescence when mate choice is becoming relevant. Adolescents aged 11–15 evaluated faces ...
  • Face, body and speech cues independently predict judgments of attractiveness 

    Saxton, Tamsin K.; Burriss, Robert P.; Murray, Alice K.; Rowland, Hannah M.; Roberts, S. Craig (Akadémiai Kiadó, 2009-03)
    Research on human attraction frequently makes use of single-modality stimuli such as neutral-expression facial photographs as proxy indicators of an individual’s attractiveness. However, we know little about how judgments ...
  • Static and dynamic facial images cue similar attractiveness judgements 

    Roberts, S. Craig; Saxton, Tamsin K.; Murray, Alice K.; Burriss, Robert P.; Rowland, Hannah M.; Little, Anthony C. (Wiley-Blackwell, 2009-06)
    Approaches to the study of human mate preferences commonly involve judgements of facial photographs and assume that these judgements provide a reasonable reflection of how individuals would be perceived in real encounters. ...
  • 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 ...
  • Vocal and facial attractiveness judgments of children, adolescents and adults: the ontogeny of mate choice 

    Saxton, Tamsin K.; Caryl, Peter G.; Roberts, S. Craig (Wiley-Blackwell, 2006-12)
    Physical traits are thought to be used as indicators of mate quality, allowing individuals to select mates most likely to help them bear the fittest offspring. As the capacity for human sexual behaviour emerges at puberty, ...
  • 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 ...
