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 (GUFD)
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 in experiments.

Should you have any queries regarding the resources published here, or if you would like to request a larger portion of the database, please feel free to send us an e-mail.
*Please note 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.
