From Piecemeal to Configurational Representation of Faces
Carey, Susan; Diamond, Rhea
Science, 195, 4275, 312-314, Jan 77
Research shows that children of about 10 years can remember photographs of faces upside down almost as well as those shown upright and are easily fooled by simple disguises. This ability to encode orientation-specific configurations of a face may reflect maturational changes in the right cerebral hemisphere. (MLH)
