Faces and eyes are critical social stimuli which adults process with ease, but how this expertise develops is not yet understood. Neural changes associated with face and eye processing were investigated developmentally using ERPs (N170), in 128 subjects (4–15 year olds and adults). Stimuli included upright faces to assess configural processing, eyes and inverted faces to assess feature-based processing. N170 was present in the youngest children with similar patterns of face sensitivity seen in… Expand
