Development of face processing expertise in children  

This research program will provide much needed information to form a comprehensive picture of the development of face processing abilities and to delineate the role of experience in the formation of face expertise. This research should facilitate the development of a general theory of face processing in children and adults. The methods that are refined for this project should be of use for clinical studies and assessments that involve children with atypical trajectories in the development of face processing including cases of autism and developmental prosopagnosia.
