In two experiments, category verification of images of common objects at subordinate, basic, and superordinate levels was performed after low-pass spatial filtering, high-pass spatial filtering, 50% phase randomization, or no image manipulation. Both experiments demonstrated the same pattern of results: Low-pass filtering selectively impaired(More)
Configural relations and a critical band of spatial frequencies (SFs) in the middle range are particularly important for face recognition. We report the results of four experiments in which the relationship between these two types of information was examined. In Experiments 1, 2A, and 2B, the face inversion effect (FIE) was used to probe configural face(More)
Previous studies have suggested that face identification is more sensitive to variations in spatial frequency content than object recognition, but none have compared how sensitive the 2 processes are to variations in spatial frequency overlap (SFO). The authors tested face and object matching accuracy under varying SFO conditions. Their results showed that(More)
Face recognition in photographic positive and negative was examined in a same/different matching task in five lighting direction conditions using untextured 3-D laser-scanned faces. The lighting directions were +60, +30, 0, -30 and -60 degrees, where negative values represent bottom lighting and positive values represent top lighting. Recognition(More)
Among the more than 30 different human proteins of the cytokeratin (CK) group of intermediate filament (IF) proteins, the significance of the epidermal polypeptide CK 2 (Moll et al., 1982, Cell 31, 11-24) has been repeatedly questioned in the literature. Here, we show, by in vitro translation and protein gel electrophoresis, that human epidermis from(More)
The mismatch negativity, an ERP that reflects the detection of change in the auditory environment, is considered to be a relatively automatic process. Its automaticity has by in large been studied using the oddball paradigm, in which a physical feature of a frequently presented standard stimulus is changed. In the present study, the automaticity of the MMN(More)
Terminal differentiation of squamous epithelia is usually characterized by the synthesis of a subset of cytokeratins (CKs) in suprabasal cell layers which become major components of the intermediate filament (IF) bundle cytoskeleton of the maturing cells. We have examined the significance, molecular nature and pattern of synthesis of the elusive human CK 2(More)
The effects of spatial frequency overlap between pairs of low-pass versus high-pass images on face recognition and matching were examined in 6 experiments. Overlap was defined as the range of spatial frequencies shared by a pair of filtered images. This factor was manipulated by processing image pairs with high-pass/low-pass filter pairs whose 50% cutoff(More)
Cytokeratins represent specific markers of certain pathways of epithelial differentiation. The purpose of this study was to describe the alterations of cytokeratin pattern and topographical distribution of individual cytokeratins in inflamed gingiva. Five healthy and 15 inflammatory samples of human gingiva were studied. From each biopsy, cryostat sections(More)
In an attempt to understand how low-level visual information contributes to object categorisation, previous studies have examined the effects of spatially filtering images on object recognition at different levels of abstraction. Here, the quantitative thresholds for object categorisation at the basic and subordinate levels are determined by using a(More)
