Abstract

Faces are particularly difficult to recognize when they are presented in the unusual upside down orientation. This face inversion-effect has been investigated for nearly three decades because it is expected that understanding the effect will reveal which kind of information processing is used in the usually very efficient processing of upright faces. Recent research revealed directly that configural information is disrupted by inversion more than local information in faces. The debate whether faces are processed in a holistic way and whether configural information is better understood in terms of holistic or local-relational representations is reviewed by discussingthe results of the more recent research. Evidence from different empiricalapproaches concerning holistic processing is rather ambiguous. However, recent studies reveal that face processing is sensitive to local-relational features, which are sensitive to inversion. Thus it seems that the astonishing skill of recognizing faces relies particularly on the processing of configural information which consists of rather local relationships - and whichis sensitive to orientation.
