    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 99:9602-5. 2002
    ..The exceptionally early sensitivity to mutual gaze demonstrated in these studies is arguably the major foundation for the later development of social skills...

    Teresa Farroni
    Centre for Brain and Cognitive Development, School of Psychology, Birkbeck College, University of London, 32 Torrington Square, London WC1E 7JL, UK
    J Exp Child Psychol 85:199-212. 2003
    ..We suggest that evolution results in information-processing biases that shape and constrain the outcome of individual development to eventually result in adult adaptive specializations...
  3. ncbi request reprint Mechanisms of eye gaze perception during infancy
    Teresa Farroni
    Centre for Brain and Cognitive Development, School of Psychology, Birkbeck College, University of London, Malet Street, London WC1E 7HX, UK
    J Cogn Neurosci 16:1320-6. 2004
    ..Our results support the previous finding that cortical processing of faces in infants is enhanced when accompanied by direct gaze. However, this effect is only found when eyes are presented within the context of an upright face...

    Teresa Farroni
    Dipartimento di Psicologia dello Sviluppo e della Socializzazione, University of Padua, Via Venezia 8, 35131 Padua, Italy
    Cognition 102:396-404. 2007
    ..Together, these results indicate that the direction of the gaze modulates face recognition in early infancy...
  5. ncbi request reprint Factors influencing newborns' preference for faces with eye contact
    Teresa Farroni
    Dipartimento di Psicologia dello Sviluppo e della Socializzazione, University of Padua, Via Venezia 8, 35131 Padua, Italy
    J Exp Child Psychol 95:298-308. 2006

    Centre for Brain and Cognitive Development, School of Psychology, Birkbeck College, University of London, London, UK
    Soc Cogn Affect Neurosci 5:88-97. 2010
    ..Taken together, these results support the shared signal hypothesis in adults, but only to a lesser extent in infants, suggesting that experience could play an important role...
  9. pmc Social perception in the infant brain: gamma oscillatory activity in response to eye gaze
    Tobias Grossmann
    Centre for Brain and Cognitive Development, Birkbeck, University of London, UK
    Soc Cogn Affect Neurosci 2:284-91. 2007
    ..These data demonstrate the use of gamma band oscillations in examining the development of social perception and suggest an early specialization of brain regions known to process eye gaze...

    Teresa Farroni
    Centre for Brain and Cognitive Development, School of Psychology, Birkbeck, University of London, Malet Street, London WC1E 7HX, United Kingdom
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 102:17245-50. 2005
    ..This result is consistent with either sensitivity to the shadowed areas of a face with overhead (natural) illumination and/or to the detection of eye contact...

    Sarah J Grice
    Centre for Brain and Cognitive Development, School of Psychology, Birkbeck College, University of London, UK
    Cortex 41:342-53. 2005
    ..In contrast, the control group showed the same pattern as typical adults. These findings suggest that the neural correlates of gaze direction processing may be delayed in young children with autism...
