Mapping the impact of culture and race in face processing
Human beings living in different geographical locations can be
categorized by culture and race. The term culture is typically used to
describe the particular behaviors and beliefs that characterize a social
or ethnic group.
Historically, it has long been presumed that across cultures, all humans
perceive the world essentially in a comparable manner, viewing objects
and attending to salient information in similar ways. Recently, however,
our work and a growing body of literature have disputed this notion by
highlighting fundamental differences in perception between people from
Western and Eastern (China, Korea and Japan) cultures. Such perceptual
biases occur even for the biologically relevant face recognition and the
decoding of facial expressions of emotion tasks. This marked contrast
obligated us to reconsider the very nature of perception and the forces
that are responsible for shaping the way we see the world. However, much
of the evidence has been so far provided by behavioral measures.
Cultural neuroscience introduces a novel biological perspective to
cross-cultural research by examining cultural variation in the brain,
and its multilevel interactions between genes, behavior and the cultural
environment. Isolating the precise contribution of biology and culture
in forging different aspects of (neural) cognition represents a major
challenge for scientists today, aiming ultimately to precisely assess
the contribution of nature and nurture in human behavior.
  Race is a universal, socially constructed concept used to categorize
humans originating from different geographical locations by salient
physiognomic variations (i.e., skin tone, eye shape, etc.). I will then
present a series of studies showing a very early extraction of race
information from faces and the impact of this visual categorization on
face processing.
I will discuss in turn the role of those two factors shaping visual
cognition, as well as integrate data from other experiments that feed
these debated fields.
