Neuroimage 62:1563-74. 2012..This conclusively refutes the ISV account while strongly supporting category as a critical factor driving N170 face selectivity...
- Face-specificity is robust across diverse stimuli and individual people, even when interstimulus variance is zeroHaline E Schendan

Psychophysiology 50:287-91. 2013..Further, ISV contributes 0 to 37% to N170 face-specificity. These findings provide evidence for optimizing face processing science. The paradigm can apply to any research in which ISV may be uncontrolled (e.g., category comparisons)...
