The Other-Race Effect Develops During Infancy
Experience plays a crucial role in the development of face processing. In the study reported here, we investigated how faces observed within the visual environment affect the development of theExpand

Is Face Processing Species-Specific During the First Year of Life?
Between 6 and 10 months of age, the infant's ability to discriminate among native speech sounds improves, whereas the same ability to discriminate among foreign speech sounds decreases. Our studyExpand

Specialization of Neural Mechanisms Underlying Face Recognition in Human Infants
Newborn infants respond preferentially to simple face-like patterns, raising the possibility that the face-specific regions identified in the adult cortex are functioning from birth. We sought toExpand

Representation of the Gender of Human Faces by Infants: A Preference for Female
Six experiments based on visual preference procedures were conducted to examine gender categorization of female versus male faces by infants aged 3 to 4 months. In experiment 1, infants familiarizedExpand

Three-month-olds, but not newborns, prefer own-race faces.
Adults are sensitive to the physical differences that define ethnic groups. However, the age at which we become sensitive to ethnic differences is currently unclear. Our study aimed to clarify thisExpand

Development of the other-race effect during infancy: evidence toward universality?
The other-race effect in face processing develops within the first year of life in Caucasian infants. It is currently unknown whether the developmental trajectory observed in Caucasian infants can beExpand

Mother's face recognition by neonates: A replication and an extension
Abstract Previous experimenters have found that 4-day-old neonates look longer at their mother's face than at a stranger's face. We have replicated this finding under conditions where the infants areExpand

Plasticity of face processing in infancy.
Experience plays a crucial role for the normal development of many perceptual and cognitive functions, such as speech perception. For example, between 6 and 10 months of age, the infant's ability toExpand

Face recognition in primates: a cross-species study
Recognition for human faces, monkey faces, and objects was assessed in both adult humans (Homo sapiens) and monkeys (Macaca mulatta) with a visual paired-comparison task. The results demonstratedExpand

Independent Component Analysis Reveals Atypical Electroencephalographic Activity During Visual Perception in Individuals with Autism
BACKGROUND Individuals with autistic spectrum disorder (ASD) experience atypical visual perception, yet the etiology of this remains unknown. The aim of this study was to investigate the neuralExpand
