Development of Face Processing: The Effect of Face Inversion.
Schwarzer, Gudrun
Child Development, v71 n2 p391-401 Apr-May 2000
Examined degree to which analytic and holistic modes of processing play a role in children's and adults' categorization of faces. Found a developmental trend from analytic to holistic processing and an effect of face inversion with increasing age. Seven-year-olds processed faces comparably to nonfacial visual stimuli, whereas a growing proportion of 10-year-olds and adults processed only upright faces holistically. (Author/KB)
