Auckland Face Simulator and Witness are two transdisciplinary projects collaboratively developed with Mark Sagar at the Laboratory for Animate Technologies, Auckland Bioengineering Institute, at the University of Auckland, New Zealand.

Corballis has utilized the digital agent modeling constructed by Sagar in a cognitive neuropsychological research project titled the Auckland Face Simulator (AFS) project. AFS is an investigation led by Corballis and his team at the School of Psychology at the University of Auckland to explore neurophysiological and neuropsychological research into emotion, digital agency and empathy. Corballis has recently set up a neurophysiology lab for research incorporating psychophysical, electrophysiological, neuroimaging and neuropsychological aspects. AFS uses digital agents that portray adult faces depicting differing ages, genders and races that have been realistically and precisely modeled to show accurate expression. These digital agents model Ekman and Friesen’s FACS system for neuropsychological research, which can be further developed for face perception research in a...
