Converging operations and the role of perceptual and decisional influences on the perception of faces: Neural and behavioral evidence

Published in:┬áBrain and Cognition, Volume 122, April 2018, 59-75 Abstract “Theoretical analyses suggest that the regularities indicative of holistic processing can be obtained by combinations of perceptual and decisional factors. Kuefner and colleagues used electrophysiological results to suggest that the composite face effect is driven solely by perceptual factors. Two limitations of their approach are (a) it did not involve behavioral measures of perceptual sensitivity or bias, and (b) it is unclear how the measures used in that study are consistent with other measures of perceptual and decisional processing. Eight observers completed three tasks involving the stimuli used by Kuefner… Read More
