The Cambridge Face Memory Test: Results for neurologically intact individuals and an investigation of its validity using inverted face stimuli and prosopagnosic participants
The two standardized tests of face recognition that are widely used suffer from serious shortcomings [Duchaine, B. & Weidenfeld, A. (2003). An evaluation of two commonly used tests of unfamiliar faceExpand

Priming of pop-out: I. Role of features
We examined a visual search task, in which observers responded to the high-acuity aspect of a popout target (shape of an odd-colored diamond or vernier offset of an odd spatial-frequency patch).Expand

Sustained and transient components of focal visual attention
Human observers fixated the center of a search array and were required to discriminate the color of an odd target if it was present. The array consisted of horizontal or vertical black or white bars.Expand

Priming of pop-out: II. The role of position
In an earlier paper (Maljkovic & Nakayama, 1994) we showed that repetition of an attention-driving feature primes the deployment of attention to the same feature on subsequent trials. Here we showExpand

Super-recognizers: People with extraordinary face recognition ability
We tested 4 people who claimed to have significantly better than ordinary face recognition ability. Exceptional ability was confirmed in each case. On two very different tests of face recognition,Expand

Da vinci stereopsis: Depth and subjective occluding contours from unpaired image points
We show that the human visual system makes use of occlusive relations in the real world to recover depth, contour, and surface from unpaired points. Expand

Binocular Rivalry and Visual Awareness in Human Extrastriate Cortex
We used functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to monitor stimulus-selective responses of the human fusiform face area (FFA) and parahippocampal place area (PPA) during binocular rivalry inExpand

We report evidence from visual search that people can develop robust representations for highly overlearned faces. When observers searched for their own face versus the face of an unfamiliarExpand

Human face recognition ability is specific and highly heritable
Compared with notable successes in the genetics of basic sensory transduction, progress on the genetics of higher level perception and cognition has been limited. We propose that investigatingExpand

Family resemblance: Ten family members with prosopagnosia and within-class object agnosia
We report on neuropsychological testing done with a family in which many members reported severe face recognition impairments. These 10 individuals were high functioning in everyday life andExpand
