Parts and Wholes in Person Recognition: Developmental Trends.
Seitz, Katja
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v82 n4 p367-81 Aug 2002
Two experiments investigated short-term visual person recognition in 8- and 10-year-olds and adults within Tanaka and Farah's part-whole paradigm. Results revealed that person recognition became more accurate between 8 years and adulthood but there was no developmental shift in visual information processes with face and whole person recognition. It was concluded that person recognition does not rely on processes completely different from those of face recognition. (Author/KB)
