Event-related potential (ERP) studies have shown that sensitivity to individual faces emerges as early as approximately 160ms in the human occipitotemporal cortex (N170). Here we tested whether this effect generalizes across changes in viewpoint. We recorded ERPs during an unfamiliar individual face adaptation paradigm. Participants were presented first(More)
Behavioral studies have shown that matching individual faces across depth rotation is easier and faster for familiar than unfamiliar faces. Here we used event-related potentials (ERPs) to clarify the locus of this behavioral facilitation, that is whether it reflects changes at the level of perceptual face encoding, or rather at later stages of processing.(More)
Human faces look more similar to each other when they are presented upside down, leading to an increase in error rate and response time during individual face discrimination tasks. This face inversion effect (FIE) is one of the most robust findings in the face processing literature. Recent neuroimaging studies using adaptation to face identity have shown(More)
