When faces are turned upside-down they are much more difficult to recognize than other objects. This “face inversion effect” has often been explained in terms of configural processing, which is impaired when faces are rotated away from the upright. Here we report a “gaze inversion effect” and discuss whether it is related to configural face processing of the whole face. Observers reported the gaze locations of photographed upright or inverted faces. When whole faces were presented, we found an… CONTINUE READING
