The sheep's accuracy dipped to about 66 percent - "a magnitude similar to that seen when humans perform this task", the team reported in the journal Royal Society Open Science. Past research has shown that horses, dogs, and even mockingbirds can discern between individuals of other species. After training, the sheep were shown two photographs - the celebrity's face and another face.
The sheep made the correct choice of celebrity or handler roughly 70 percent of the time on average.
To see if the sheep were just memorizing shapes, researchers did the same test, but with pictures in which the celebs' heads were tilted right or left. People recognise familiar faces easily, and can identify unfamiliar faces from repeatedly presented images.
Mugabe fires deputy Mnangagwa Reacting to Monday's development, ZANU-PF's youth league said Grace Mugabe should replace Mnangagwa. He has been endorsed as his party's candidate for next year's election.
The sheep picked the celebrity's face eight times out of 10. On her first try, one sheep appeared taken aback by the new face in the mix. The photo recognition experiment gives scientists a way to track changes in the cognitive abilities of sheep with a gene mutation that causes Huntington's disease, an incurable neurodegenerative disease.
Face recognition is a critical social skill in humans, and we are able to identify a known person within milliseconds of seeing them. The scientists have been rewarded better for measuring the brain functions of sheep.
In addition, they also say the study could help in the research into Huntington's disease, as well as other human brain disorders that affect mental processing.
Sheep can recognize human faces in photos at a level that's comparable to humans.
