Face Recognition in 4- to 7-Year-Olds: Processing of Configural, Featural, and Paraphernalia Information.
Freire, Alejo; Lee, Kang
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v80 n4 p347-71 Dec 2001
Tested in two studies 4- to 7-year-olds' face recognition by manipulating the faces' configural and featural information. Found that even with only a single 5-second exposure, most children could use configural and featural cues to make identity judgments. Repeated exposure and feedback improved others' performance. Even proficient memories were susceptible to disruption when a superfluous hat was added. (Author/KB)
