  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Face, recognition, infants, facial features, newborns.

The present study investigated, using the habituation technique, what perceptual cues are used by newborns in the process of recognition of a stranger's face. Evidence showed that newborns are able to discriminate and recognize a face when all the facial features are visible (exp. 1), and when only the inner (exp. 2) or the other features are present (exp. 3).
