    ..Overall, the results suggest that the VET is a reliable and valid measure of object recognition abilities and can measure both domain-general skills and domain-specific expertise, which were both found to depend on the sex of observers...

    Cogn Sci 35:330-47. 2011
    ..These results indicate that individuation practice is one mechanism through which cognitive, perceptual, and/or social processes promote growth of the own-race face recognition advantage...

    ..Because of the limited heterogeneity observed, these results could mean that the FFA contains one population of cells capable of representing multiple categories. ..
