  • Visual Cognition 2
    • Configural vs Featural Processing
      • Configual processing: the processing of spatial layout among facial features which are common to all human faces
        • holistic processing: faces are perceived as a whole,rather than based on individual facial features
      • Featural Ppocessing: faces are processed on a basis of facial features rather than looking at the face as a whole
        • holistic processing: faces are perceived as a whole,rather than based on individual facial features
    • Major Phenomena in face recognition
      • Inversion effect: easier to recogniise a face when upright than upside down, no difference between inverted / upright objects but it effects face regogniton
      • Other race effect: better at recognising faces of our own race than other races
        • Own race face processing relays more on configural into where as other race face processing depends more on featural info
      • Composite effect: :P's are asked to identitfy the top half of the composite face composed of two different people
        • Difficult to do as when two parts of different faces are put together this produces new facial gestalt
