Special Issue "The Development of Face Processing: Insights from Typical and Atypical Functioning"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 May 2019).
Face processing is an important part of our everyday lives that provides our primary means to identify other individuals so we can form and maintain social relationships. Because of the daily necessity of processing facial information, understanding the development of face processing—whether typical or atypical—is an essential area of study. This area is especially relevant given the prevalence of developmental disorders such as autism spectrum disorders and prosopagnosia, which are associated with, or defined by, impaired face processing.
This Special Issue will feature a selection of research articles on the development of face processing, including studies of typical or atypical functioning. The term “face processing” refers to face recognition, face memory, face perception, and other types of face-related processes such as face detection, processing of emotional expression, and the perception of race, gender, etc. Contributions that discuss impaired face processing and/or treatments for impaired face processing are especially encouraged.
I look forward to your submission to this exciting Special Issue.
Dr. Kirsten Dalrymple
