Event-related potentials for the implicit and explicit processing of emotional facial expressions as basic level- and subordinate level-stimulus categories
The two dominant models in face perception propose independent mechanisms are responsible for initial face perception (discriminating a face from an object), identity recognition (recognizing a specific face) and emotional expression perception (processing of an expression). However, Bruce and Young (1986) propose a linear model where identity recognition and expression perception operate in a parallel manner after initial face perception while Haxby, Hoffman and Gobbini (2000) propose an interactive model where all three mechanisms interact with each other within a non-linear core system. ...
