    We assess the role of motion when encoding and recognizing unfamiliar faces, using a recognition memory paradigm. This reveals a facilitative role for non-rigid motion when learning unfamiliar same and other-race faces, and indicate that it is more important that the face is learned, rather than recognized, in motion. A computational study of the faces using Appearance Models of facial variation, shows that this lack a motion effect at recognition was reproduced by a norm-based encoding of faces, with the selection of features based on distance from the norm.
