Abstract

We examined the inversion and misalignment effect on face perception with a magnetoencephalographic study. The inversion increased the M2 component (150-170 ms), reflecting the enhanced activity in the inferior temporal region. The misalignment increased the M3 component (200-250 ms), reflecting the enhanced activity in the occipital region. These effects were observed for human but not for animal faces.
