Abstract(in Japanese) (See Japanese page)
Abstract(in English) Cleft lip and palate patients often present with unique noses. Many CLP patients have experienced having the uniqueness of their noses pointed out and/or having their noses joked about by their peers. These experiences affect and reduce their inter-personal communication skills. This experiment aimed to examine what shapes of cleft lip noses were perceptually salient. Twenty-one female undergraduates were presented simultaneously with two faces and asked to determine any differences between the two faces. The stimulus faces were constructed by embedding the CLP patients'noses into the average faces. The results suggest the deformities of the CLP patients'noses are more distinctive, when the shapes of the nostrils are bilateral asymmetrical and/or a horizontal deviation between the nasal tip and the base of columella is high.
