Development of holistic vs. featural processing in face recognition (2014)
Journal Article
Liu, C. H., & Nakabayashi, K. (2014). Development of holistic vs. featural processing in face recognition. Frontiers in human neuroscience, 8(OCT), doi:10.3389/fnhum.2014.00831. ISSN 1662-5161

According to a classic view developed by Carey and Diamond (1977), young children process faces in a piecemeal fashion before adult-like holistic processing starts to emerge at the age of around 10 years. This is known as the encoding switch hypothes... Read More

Long-term repetition priming and semantic interference in a lexical-semantic matching task: object names and colors (2014)
Journal Article
Lloyd-Jones, T. J., & Nakabayashi, K. (2014). Long-term repetition priming and semantic interference in a lexical-semantic matching task: object names and colors. Frontiers in psychology Frontiers Research Foundation, 5(JUN), doi:10.3389/fpsyg.2014.00644. ISSN 1664-1078

Using a novel paradigm to engage the long-term mappings between object names and the prototypical colors for objects, we investigated the retrieval of object-color knowledge as indexed by long-term priming (the benefit in performance from a prior enc... Read More

Developmental differences in holistic interference of facial part recognition (2013)
Journal Article
Nakabayashi, K., & Liu, C. H. (2013). Developmental differences in holistic interference of facial part recognition. PloS one, 8(10), e77504. doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0077504

Research has shown that adults' recognition of a facial part can be disrupted if the part is learnt without a face context but tested in a whole face. This has been interpreted as the holistic interference effect. The present study investigated wheth... Read More

Dissociating positive and negative influences of verbal processing on the recognition of pictures of faces and objects (2012)
Journal Article
Burton, A. M., Nakabayashi, K., Brandimonte, M. A., & Lloyd-Jones, T. J. (2012). Dissociating positive and negative influences of verbal processing on the recognition of pictures of faces and objects. Journal of experimental psychology. Learning, memory, and cognition, 38(2), (376-390). doi:10.1037/a0025782. ISSN 0278-7393

Four experiments investigated the role of verbal processing in the recognition of pictures of faces and objects. We used (a) a stimulus-encoding task where participants learned sequentially presented pictures in control, articulatory suppression, and... Read More

Beauty hinders attention switch in change detection : the role of facial attractiveness and distinctiveness (2012)
Journal Article
Chen, W., Liu, C. H., & Nakabayashi, K. (2012). Beauty hinders attention switch in change detection : the role of facial attractiveness and distinctiveness. PloS one, 7(2), (e32897). doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0032897. ISSN 1932-6203

Background: Recent research has shown that the presence of a task-irrelevant attractive face can induce a transient diversion of attention from a perceptual task that requires covert deployment of attention to one of the two locations. However, it is... Read More

Independent influences of verbalization and race on the configural and featural processing of faces: A behavioral and eye movement study (2012)
Journal Article
Liu, C. H., Nakabayashi, K., Butcher, N., & Lloyd-Jones, T. J. (2012). Independent influences of verbalization and race on the configural and featural processing of faces: A behavioral and eye movement study. Journal of experimental psychology. Learning, memory, and cognition, 38(1), (61-77). doi:10.1037/a0024853. ISSN 0278-7393

Describing a face in words can either hinder or help subsequent face recognition. Here, the authors examined the relationship between the benefit from verbally describing a series of faces and the same-race advantage (SRA) whereby people are better a... Read More

Independent effects of colour on object identification and memory (2009)
Journal Article
Nakabayashi, K., & Lloyd-Jones, T. J. (2009). Independent effects of colour on object identification and memory. Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology, 62(2), 310-322. doi:10.1080/17470210801954827

We examined the effects of colour on object identification and memory using a study-test priming procedure with a coloured-object decision task at test (i.e., deciding whether an object is correctly coloured). Objects were selected to have a single a... Read More

The role of verbal processing at different stages of recognition memory for faces (2008)
Journal Article
Burton, A. M., Nakabayashi, K., & Burton, A. (2008). The role of verbal processing at different stages of recognition memory for faces. European Journal of Cognitive Psychology, 20(3), (478-496). doi:10.1080/09541440801946174. ISSN 0954-1446

Four experiments examined the role of verbal processing at different stages of face recognition memory. In Experiment 1 participants learned faces with or without articulatory suppression, then engaged in an old/new recognition task. Using the same p... Read More
