    Cogn Sci 31:911-24. 2007
    ..Overall, these results support the view that one's categorization of a face as belonging to the same or another race plays a critical role in the holistic processing of this face...
  64. ncbi request reprint The fusiform face area is tuned for curvilinear patterns with more high-contrasted elements in the upper part

    Neuroimage 31:313-9. 2006
    ..These findings provide direct evidence that the FFA is tuned for geometrical properties fitting best with the structure of faces, a computational mechanism that might drive the automatic detection of faces in the visual world...

    Roberto Caldara
    Faculte de Psychologie et des Sciences de l Education, University of Geneva, 40 Boulevard du Pont d Arve, 1211 Geneva 4, Switzerland
    Neuroreport 15:905-10. 2004
    ..Altogether, these findings suggest that the lesser experience of other-race faces engender fewer semantic representations, which in turn accelerate their speed of processing...
  71. ncbi request reprint Does prosopagnosia take the eyes out of face representations? Evidence for a defect in representing diagnostic facial information following brain damage
    Roberto Caldara
    University of Glasgow, UK
    J Cogn Neurosci 17:1652-66. 2005
    ..Together, the findings reported here suggest that damage to the face processing system is characterized by an inability to use the information that is optimal to judge identity, focusing instead on suboptimal information...

    Bruno Rossion
    Brown University, USA
    Behav Cogn Neurosci Rev 1:63-75. 2002
    ..These modulations are in agreement with the perceptual locus of the FIE and reinforce the view that the FFA and N170 are sensitive to individual face discrimination...
