Science How we judge personality from faces depends on our beliefs about how personality works We make snap judgments of others based not only on their facial appearance, but also on our pre-existing beliefs about how others' personalities work NYU researchers tested how much we believe different traits co-occur in other people's personalities--for instance, how much we think competence co-occurs with friendliness in others. They then used a method able to visualize the subjects' mental image of a personality trait, allowing them to see if subjects who believe competent people tend to also be friendly have mental images of a competent face and friendly face that are physically more resembling.

A team of researchers at the University of Minnesota have, for the first time, fully 3D printed an array of light receptors on a hemispherical surface. This discovery marks a significant step toward creating a "bionic eye" that could someday help blind people see or sighted people see better.
