Development of the functional neural systems for face expertise  

Face processing deficits are believed to underlie several profound developmental social-cognitive disorders (i.e., autism, William's syndrome). This project will provide crucial data on the development of the neural networks and neuroanatomical substrates supporting expertise for human face processing in typically developing children. New theories and assessment methods for children at risk for visual processing deficits and delays may stem from these results. Project Status
