Glasgow Face Matching Test (GFMT) and Glasgow
Unfamiliar Face Database (GUFD)
These pages are now hosted at Aberdeen University, on
Professor Mike Burton's pages.
Glasgow Face Matching Test (GFMT)
This test of unfamiliar face
matching ability was developed as part of an ESRC
funded research project entitled “Individual Variation
in Face Processing” (ESRC Grant ref no.
RES-000-23-1348). Short and long versions of the test
are available to download from the link below. The
linked folder also contains normative data for each
test as well as image files that can be used to
familiarise participants with the identities that
appear in the test.
Glasgow Unfamiliar Face Database
This database was used to
create the GMFT and the stimuli were collected as part
of the same project. The linked folder contains three
images of 303 identities (each taken using separate
cameras), similarity data quantifying perceived
similarity between any two identities and 20 images
per identity that have been extracted from a video
clip for the purpose of familiarisation. As with the
familiarisation folders in the GMFT folder, it will be
necessary to select the most suitable images for use
that this folder contains only a small portion of
the entire corpus. For each identity in the full
database there are five images taken on each still
camera in addition to a quicktime video file (see
figure below). If you would like access to the full
database please e-mail us so that this can be arranged.
