What shape are the neural response functions underlying opponent coding in face space? A psychophysical investigation

Susilo, Bagus (Tirta); McKone, Elinor; Edwards, Mark


Recent evidence has shown that face space represents facial identity information using two-pool opponent coding. Here we ask whether the shape of the monotonic neural response functions underlying such coding is linear (i.e. face space codes all equal-sized physical changes with equal sensitivity) or nonlinear (e.g. face space shows greater coding sensitivity around the average face). Using adaptation aftereffects and pairwise discrimination tasks, our results for face attributes of eye height...[Show more]
