Using innate visual biases to guide face learning in natural scenes: a computational investigation.

Abstract

Newborn infants appear to possess an innate bias that guides preferential orienting to and tracking of human faces. There is, however, no clear agreement as to the underlying mechanism supporting such a preference. In particular, two competing theories (known as the 'structural' and 'sensory' hypotheses) conjecture fundamentally different biasing mechanisms… (More)
