Assessment of face-processing skills

This test aims to assess memory for faces.
The stimuli consist of grey-scaled photographs of women between the ages of 20 and 30.
External facial features were omitted, so neither hair nor hairlines are visible, learning only differences of luminance. Subjects are instructed to indicate target faces which are presented together in the distractor faces. Regonition performance as well as reaction times are registered

At beginning of each trial, three different photographs of a person are presented for three seconds. In the test condition, participants have to indicate (by pressing a button), whether the current face has previously been encountered
