A neural adaptation paradigm where adaptor and test stimuli were presented in rapid succession was employed to investigate links between the face-sensitive N170 component and configural face processing. In Experiment 1, schematic adaptor stimuli preceded naturalistic images of upright faces, inverted faces, or isolated eyes. Relative to a baseline condition with schematic house adaptors, upright and inverted schematic faces adapted the N170 to subsequent naturalistic faces, demonstrating that… CONTINUE READING
