What's the file format for faces?
What file format are images stored in our brains? In particular, what format are faces stored in? If I'm driving and I catch a fleeting glimpse of someone attractive, the face will burn into my memory for at least a couple minutes. But I don't think my brain stores a camera-style pixel-by-pixel snashop of the face. I don't see an actual image in my head, but rather a ghost of various features floating in and out of significance, like the particular curvature and thickness of her eyebrows.
