Global face distortion aftereffects tap face-specific and shape-generic processes

Dennett, Hugh; Edwards, Mark; McKone, Elinor


Face aftereffects are commonly used to investigate the mechanisms underlying face processing, based on the assumption that they tap processes involved specifically with face-level coding (e.g., face space). However, face aftereffects could potentially arise from many levels of the visual system, and recent research has shown that one figural aftereffect (eye height) has both face-level and shape-generic components. Another very widely used figural manipulation is global face distortion. Here we...[Show more]
