Die Wahrnehmung und Wiedererkennung von Gesichtern im Säuglings- und Kleinkindalter
Face processing in infancy and early childhood

2013, 160-168

Summary: Face processing, visual recognition, configural processing, emotions

Keywords: The present article describes different aspects of the development of face processing within the first years of life. Beginning with the considerable face recognition abilities in infants we illustrate the processing of facial identity and facial emotional expressions in young children. Based on the finding that infants, children, and adults are better at recognizing faces of their own ethnicity compared to faces of other ethnicities, we highlight the role everyday experience with faces plays in the development of face recognition. Dysfunctional face recognition is discussed in the context of brain lesions, early visual deprivation, and in relation to other underlying diseases.
