≪Organizer Abstract≫
This symposium focuses on cultural and social influences on the development of face recognition. Prior research has revealed cultural differences in face recognition. However, little is known about the onset of these differences in the early childhood. The purpose of the symposium is to bring together new findings in this area and to exchange information about how different forms of cultural and social elements play a role in development of face recognition. The symposium will consist of five talks. The first theme of these talks will be face-processing strategies inferred from children's eye movement. The second will be on the face processing bias in infants. The third will be on developmental changes in attention to faces to face in early infancy, the fourth will be on development of the own-race advantage, and the fifth will be on perceptual narrowing for faces in infants.
