Description

Speaker: Buyun Xu

Abstract:

The Steady-state Visual Evoked Potential (SSVEP) is a periodic EEG response elicited by periodic visual stimulation, and is proved to be a useful tool in testing face processing. We compared the SSVEP response to faces and birds and found that participants (non-bird experts) were more responsive to face identity changes than bird identity changes. In another experiment, we found reliable correlation between the SSVEP responses to face identity changes and the scores of the Cambridge Face Memory Tests, suggesting that the SSVEP is a valid tool to measure the neural substrates of face identity processing.
