The perception of faces in different poses by 1‐month‐olds (pages 35-41)

An experiment is described in which the ability of 1‐month‐old infants to recognize their mothers visually was explored with the live faces of mother and stranger presented in three different poses. The en face and half‐profile poses resulted in significant visual preferences for the mother being demonstrated, but the profile pose did not. The temporal stability of the observed memory is discussed along with potential methodological artifacts.
