An extensive body of literature suggests that face perception depends critically upon specialised face processing mechanisms. Although it seems clear that specialised face processing is required to explain face recognition, face discrimination is a simpler task that could possibly be solved with a general pattern discrimination mechanism. Observers were presented with face images that were either identical or not and judged whether they were the same or different.
