Abstract

Adults are sensitive to the physical differences that define ethnic groups. However, the age at which we become sensitive to ethnic

using a visual preference (VP) paradigm. While newborn infants demonstrated no spontaneous preference for faces from either

group. These results suggest that preferential selectivity based on ethnic differences is not present in the first days of life, but is

from differences in exposure to own- versus other-race faces during early development
