- The other-race effect develops during infancy: evidence of perceptual narrowingDavid J Kelly
University of Sheffield, Psychology Department, Sheffield, South Yorkshire, United Kingdom
Psychol Sci 18:1084-9. 2007..The findings suggest that facial input from the infant's visual environment is crucial for shaping the face-processing system early in infancy, resulting in differential recognition accuracy for faces of different races in adulthood...
