Complexities of face perception and categorisation

Journal Article


Abstract


  • We amplify possible complications to the tidy division between early vision and later categorisation which arise when we consider the perception of human faces. Although a primitive face-detecting system, used or social attention, may indeed be integral to 'early vision,' the relationship between this and diverse other uses made of information from faces far from clear.
