The Cambridge Face Memory Test: Results for neurologically intact individuals and an investigation of its validity using inverted face stimuli and prosopagnosic participants
Diagnosing prosopagnosia: Effects of ageing, sex, and participant–stimulus ethnic match on the Cambridge Face Memory Test and Cambridge Face Perception Test
The extent to which norms for these tasks must take into account ageing, sex, and testing country is assessed to assess the prevalence of developmental prosopagnosia.
The role of the occipital face area in the cortical face perception network

Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) studies have identified spatially distinct face-selective regions in human cortex. These regions have been linked together to form the components of a…
Super-recognizers: People with extraordinary face recognition ability
The findings demonstrate the existence of people with exceptionally good face recognition ability and show that the range of face recognition and face perception ability is wider than has been previously acknowledged.
The Cambridge Car Memory Test: A task matched in format to the Cambridge Face Memory Test, with norms, reliability, sex differences, dissociations from face memory, and expertise effects
Many research questions require a within-class object recognition task matched for general cognitive requirements with a face recognition task. If the object task also has high internal reliability,…

The results establish a clear genetic basis for face recognition, opening this intensively studied and socially advantageous cognitive trait to genetic investigation and identifying a highly specific cognitive ability that is highly heritable.
TMS Evidence for the Involvement of the Right Occipital Face Area in Early Face Processing
Family resemblance: Ten family members with prosopagnosia and within-class object agnosia
The results strongly suggest the existence of a genetic condition leading to a selective deficit of visual recognition in individuals high functioning in everyday life.
A Revised Neural Framework for Face Processing.
New findings about face-selective areas that suggest the need for modifications and additions to the Haxby model are reviewed, and it is suggested that face perception depends on a ventral stream that represents form information and a dorsal stream driven by motion and form information.
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Disrupts the Perception and Embodiment of Facial Expressions

Theories of embodied cognition propose that recognizing facial expressions requires visual processing followed by simulation of the somatovisceral responses associated with the perceived expression.…
