The Role of Racial Markers in Race Perception and Racial Categorization
This chapter argues that race is so important socially, that a special cognitive mechanism sensitive to race via racial markers has been selected out through adaptive pressures within the evolutionary process. It presents a model representing how the mechanism integrates with other cognitive processes. Finally, it discusses how this model might be useful in examining other face-related phenomena such as the inversion effect.
