Perceptual Priming for Upright and Inverted Faces in Infants and Adults.
Webb, Sara J.; Nelson, Charles A.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v79 n1 p1-22 May 2001
Used event-related potentials to novel and primed upright and inverted faces to examine evidence of repetition priming in 6-month-olds. Found that repeated faces demonstrated greater negativity than novel faces, and upright faces demonstrated greater negativity than inverted faces. Comparisons with adults tested in a similar experiment support the hypothesis that 6-month-olds reveal electrophysiological evidence of priming. (Author/KB)
