- Face inversion disproportionately impairs the perception of vertical but not horizontal relations between featuresValerie Goffaux

- Faces are "spatial"--holistic face perception is supported by low spatial frequenciesValerie Goffaux
Department of Neurocognition, Faculty of Psychology, University of Maastricht, Maastricht, Netherlands
J Exp Psychol Hum Percept Perform 32:1023-39. 2006..These findings indicate that holistic face perception is largely supported by low spatial frequencies. They also suggest that holistic processing precedes the analysis of local features during face perception...
- The respective role of low and high spatial frequencies in supporting configural and featural processing of facesValerie Goffaux
Face Categorization Laboratory and Neurophysiology Laboratory, University of Louvain, Place du Cardinal Mercier 10, 1348 Louvain la Neuve, Belgium
Perception 34:77-86. 2005..These results support the dominant role that LSFs play in the configural processing of faces, whereas featural processing is largely dependent on HSFs...
- Human non-phase-locked gamma oscillations in experience-based perception of visual scenesValerie Goffaux
Unité de Neurosciences Cognitives NESC, UCL, Louvain la Neuve, Belgium
Neurosci Lett 354:14-7. 2004..These results suggest that mid-latency gamma oscillations in the visual cortex underlie the experience-based perception of visual scenes...
- Face inversion disrupts the perception of vertical relations between features in the right human occipito-temporal cortexValerie Goffaux
Maastricht Brain Imaging Centre, University of Maastricht, Maastricht, The Netherlands
J Neuropsychol 3:45-67. 2009..These findings corroborate the view that the vulnerability of face perception to inversion stems mainly from the disrupted processing of vertical face relations in the right-lateralized network of face-preferring regions (rMFG, rIOG)...
- Newborns' face recognition is based on spatial frequencies below 0.5 cycles per degreeAdélaïde de Heering

- The horizontal and vertical relations in upright faces are transmitted by different spatial frequency rangesValerie Goffaux
Maastricht Brain Imaging Center, Department of Neurocognition, Faculty of Psychology, University of Maastricht, Universiteitssingel 40, 6229 ER Maastricht, The Netherlands
Acta Psychol (Amst) 128:119-26. 2008..These findings not only confirm that horizontal and vertical relations play distinct functional roles in face perception, but they also further suggest a unique role of vertical relations in face individuation...
- Spatial interactions in upright and inverted faces: re-exploration of spatial scale influenceValerie Goffaux
Maastricht Brain Imaging Center M BIC, Department of Neurocognition, Faculty of Psychology, University of Maastricht, P O Box 616, 6200 MD, Masstricht, The Netherlands
Vision Res 49:774-81. 2009..Results further show that spatial interactions are driven by LSF, independently of the spectral properties of the attended face region...
- Long-term expertise with artificial objects increases visual competition with early face categorization processesBruno Rossion
Universite Catholique de Louvain, Belgium
J Cogn Neurosci 19:543-55. 2007..Together, these results show that neural representations of faces and nonface objects in a domain of expertise compete for visual processes in the occipito-temporal cortex as early as 130-200 msec following stimulus onset...
- Three-month-old infants' sensitivity to horizontal information within facesAdélaïde de Heering
Institute of Research in Psychology and Institute of Neuroscience, University of Louvain, Louvain la Neuve, Belgium
Dev Psychobiol 58:536-42. 2016..They also recall the importance, for infants, of some facial features, arranged in a top-heavy configuration, particularly revealed by this band of information. © 2016 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. Dev Psychobiol 58: 536-542, 2016. ..
- Selectivity of Face Perception to Horizontal Information over Lifespan (from 6 to 74 Year Old)Valerie Goffaux
Institut de Recherche en Sciences Psychologiques IPSY, Universite Catholique de Louvain UCL, Louvain la Neuve, Belgique Institute of Neuroscience IONS, Universite Catholique de Louvain UCL, Louvain la Neuve, Belgique Cognitive Neuroscience Department, Maastricht University, Maastricht, The Netherlands
PLoS ONE 10:e0138812. 2015..These findings indicate that the protracted specialization of the face processing system relies on the extensive experience humans acquire at encoding the horizontal information conveyed by upright faces. ..
