Many believe that the beautiful face can not be forgotten. But the study of German psychologists shows the opposite: the beauty of the face does not allow to memorize it – unless there is a bright feature on it. The emotions are „guilty“ for all of that.
It seems that the beautiful human face should be remembered better, because it’s nice to see attractive people. According to the experiments of psychologists from the University of Jena, published in the journal Neuropsychologia, people tend to remember unattractive faces, unless there are not any particularly notable features on the beautiful one.
During the experiment, participants were offered photos of beautiful and not so beautiful people. In the process of viewing an encephalography data is observed, showing the brain activity during the test.
