Why does picture-plane inversion sometimes dissociate perception of features and spacing in faces, and sometimes not? Toward a new theory of holistic processing

McKone, Elinor; Yovel, Galit


Classically, it has been presumed that picture-plane inversion primarily reduces sensitivity to spacing/ configural information in faces (distance between location of the major features) and has little effect on sensitivity to local feature information (e.g., eye shape or color). Here, we review 22 published studies relevant to this claim.
