Please join us for a free live webinar as part of Brock University’s Lifespan Development Research Institute’s community Speaker Series – Why Faces Matter: Recognizing People & Forming First Impressions across the Lifespan on Thursday, April 29 from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. EST

Topic: Recognizing faces is important when interacting with others or even when tracking characters in a movie or television series. First impressions (nice or mean?) guide our behaviour towards others.

This free webinar presented by Brock University’s Dr. Cathy Mondloch and students will explore some fascinating questions about face perception:

– How does our ability to recognize faces change across the lifespan?

– How do first impressions of child and older adult faces influence our behaviour towards them?

– Why should you carefully consider which photo to post on social media or on a job application? 

How do I register? This webinar is free and open to the public, but registration is required to gain access to the online event. RSVP online at
