The goal of the present paper is to propose a solution to the 'saliency problem' which has been raised in regard to Rakover and Cahlon's (1989) Catch model for identifying a previously seen target face (Ft). In contrast to real life situations, the Catch model assigned the same weight to different facial dimensions and values. Mathematical proofs, reanalyses of the results of three experiments reported in Rakover and Cahlon, and the analysis of the results of a new experiment show that this proposal expands and improves the Catch model.
