Researchers argue that faces are recognized via the configuration of their parts. An important behavioral finding supporting this claim is the face-inversion effect, in which inversion impairs recognition of faces more than nonface objects. Until recently, faces were the only class of objects producing the inversion effect for untrained individuals. This(More)
Does the human visual system contain a specialized system for face recognition, not used for the recognition of other objects? This question was addressed using the "face inversion effect" which refers to the loss of our normal proficiency at face perception when faces are inverted. We found that a prosopagnosic subject paradoxically performed better at(More)
BACKGROUND There is substantial evidence that children with autism are impaired in face recognition. Although many researchers have suggested that this impairment derives from a failure of holistic face processing and a tendency to represent and encode faces on a part-by-part basis, this hypothesis has not been tested directly. METHOD Holistic face(More)
A familiar face can be recognized across many changes in the stimulus input. In this research, the many-to-one mapping of face stimuli to a single face memory is referred to as a face memory's 'attractor field'. According to the attractor field approach, a face memory will be activated by any stimuli falling within the boundaries of its attractor field. It(More)
In a memorable scene from The Wizard of Oz, Dorothy is catapulted by a ferocious tornado from a drab, grey-scale Midwest existence into the land of Oz, a world that is portrayed in full-scale, technocolor vision. In the film, the transition from black-and-white to color images is a striking cinematographic technique alerting Dorothy and the audience that we(More)
Concepts are composed of features related to different sensory and motor modalities such as vision, sound, and action. It is a matter of controversy whether conceptual features are represented in sensory-motor areas reflecting the specific learning experience during acquisition. In order to address this issue, we assessed the plasticity of conceptual(More)
processing and end-use characteristics, which depend on protein hydration and development through mixing. Hybridizations between hard and soft wheat types could be a source Hard wheat is generally used for making bread-type of novel variation for wheat quality improvement. This study was conducted to identify genomic regions related to differences in(More)
A lack of typical age-related improvement from adolescence to adulthood contributes to face recognition deficits in adults with autism on the Cambridge Face Memory Test (CFMT). The current studies examine if this atypical developmental trajectory generalizes to other tasks and objects, including parts of the face. The CFMT tests recognition of whole faces,(More)
Fine mapping by recombinant backcross populations revealed that a preharvest sprouting QTL on 2B contained two QTLs linked in coupling with different effects on the phenotype. Wheat preharvest sprouting (PHS) occurs when grain germinates on the plant before harvest, resulting in reduced grain quality. Previous mapping of quantitative trait locus (QTL)(More)
Neurofeedback paradigms are of increasing interest, both for brain-computer interfaces and for training purposes. In the current study we examine multi-session training in a P3 speller application which uses P300 evoked response potentials to identify the letter of a word a participant is attempting to spell. Because neurofeedback training is most effective(More)
