found that men with higher levels of facial symmetry – having
faces with matching left and right sides – were less prone
to mental decline between the ages of 79 and 83.
at the University of Edinburgh compared reasoning and reaction time
test scores with measurements of facial symmetry in 216 men and
women studied since 1932.
showed that facial symmetry in men, but not women, was linked to
the effects of ageing on mental processes.
men with a high degree of facial symmetry include the actors George
Clooney, Brad Pitt and Jude Law.
