Facing the Other: Novel Theories and Methods in Face Perception Research
by

Publisher: Frontiers Media SA
Number of pages: 371

Description:

The serious social difficulties that follow abnormalities of the face recognition system (i.e., prosopagnosia) strongly underline the importance of typical face skills in our everyday life.
