    Neuropsychologia 63:135-44. 2014
    ..The robustness of expertise effects in right FFA2 and the expertise effects driven by visual similarity both argue against attention being the sole determinant of expertise effects in extrastriate areas. ..
  2. pmc The Vanderbilt Expertise Test reveals domain-general and domain-specific sex effects in object recognition
    Rankin W McGugin
    Department of Psychology, Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN 37203, USA
    Vision Res 69:10-22. 2012
    ..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...
  3. doi request reprint Experience moderates overlap between object and face recognition, suggesting a common ability
    Isabel Gauthier
    Department of Psychology, Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN, USA
    J Vis 14:7. 2014
    ..Our findings imply that both face and object recognition are supported by a common, domain-general ability expressed through experience with a category and best measured when accounting for experience...
  4. pmc Expertise increases the functional overlap between face and object perception
    Thomas J McKeeff
    Department of Psychology, Princeton University, Princeton, NJ, USA
    Cognition 117:355-60. 2010
    ....
  5. pmc Irrelevant objects of expertise compete with faces during visual search
    Rankin W McGugin
    Department of Psychology, Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN 37203, USA
    Atten Percept Psychophys 73:309-17. 2011
    ..Objects of expertise interfere with face perception even when they are task irrelevant, visually distinct, and separated in space from faces...
  6. pmc Race-specific perceptual discrimination improvement following short individuation training with faces
    Rankin W McGugin
    Department of Psychology, Vanderbilt University, PMB 407817, 2301 Vanderbilt Place, Nashville, TN 37240 7817, USA
    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...
  7. pmc Heterogeneity of FFA responses or multiplexing?
    David A Ross
    Department of Psychology, Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN, USA Electronic address
    Trends Cogn Sci 18:171-2. 2014
    ..Because of the limited heterogeneity observed, these results could mean that the FFA contains one population of cells capable of representing multiple categories. ..
