First come, first served: A scenario about the development of hemispheric specialization in face recognition during infancy

Proposes a scenario on hemispheric specialization for physiognomy recognition and processing. This scenario considers whether functional hemispheric asymmetry results from interactions between endogenous factors regulating the maturational rates of neuronal sets involved in visual pattern processing, or from regular events and features encountered in the environment (experiental factors). It is suggested that the temporal relationships between the 2 sets of events (endogenous and experiental) are a factor contributing to the shaping of the functional hemispheric asymmetry observed in adult face processing recognition.
