Race Has Little Effect on People’s Ability to Spot Family Resemblances

Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO)

Scientists have ample evidence that individuals use a variety of cues to identify their own kin. People can also detect resemblances in families other than their own. A new study shows that their success in doing so is the same, whether or not those families are the same race as themselves.
