The Neuropsychology of Face Perception and Facial Expression

Synopsis

This book is the first to offer an overview of the increasingly studied field of face perception.

Experimental and pathological dissociation methods are used to understand both the precise cognitive mechanisms and the cerebral functions involved in face perception.

Three main areas of investigation are discussed:

  • face processing after brain damage;
  • lateral differences for face processing in normals;
  • neuropsychological studies on facial expressions.
