Perception of Faces, Objects, and Scenes

Analytic and Holistic Processes

Edited by Mary A. Peterson and Gillian Rhodes

Advances in Visual Cognition

From a barrage of photons, we readily and effortlessly recognize the faces of our friends, and the familiar objects and scenes around us. However, these tasks cannot be simple for our visual systems--faces are all extremely similar as visual patterns, and objects look quite different when viewed from different viewpoints. How do our visual systems solve these problems? The contributors to this volume seek to answer this question by exploring how analytic and holistic processes contribute to our perception of faces, objects, and scenes.
