Focuses on the recognition of upright and inverted faces presented to the left and right visual fields. Difference in the ability of normal subjects to respond 'same' or 'different' to a pair of faces displayed tachistoscopically according to field of presentation; Accuracy of recognizing faces on both fields; Special face specific recognition system in the right hemisphere which is sensitive to orientation.
