[en] A recent approach to implicitly study face recognition skills has been the fast periodic visual
stimulation (FPVS) coupled with electroencephalography (EEG). Its relationship with explicit
behavioral measures of face individuation remains largely undocumented. We evaluated the relationship
of the FPVS–EEG measure of individuation and performance at a computer version of
the Benton Face Recognition Test. High-density EEG was recorded in 32 participants presented
with an unfamiliar face at a rate of 6Hz (F) for 60 s. Every five faces, new identities were inserted.
The resulting 1.2 Hz (F/5) EEG response and its harmonics objectively indexed rapid individuation
of unfamiliar faces. The robust individuation response, observed over occipitotemporal sites, was
significantly correlated with speed, but not accuracy rate of the computer version of the Benton
Face Recognition Test. This effect was driven by a few individuals who were particularly slow at
the behavioral test and also showed the lowest face individuation response. These results highlight the importance of considering the time taken to recognize a face, as a complementary to
accuracy rate variable, providing valuable information about one’s recognition skills. Overall,
these observations strengthen the diagnostic value of FPVS–EEG as an objective and rapid flag
for specific difficulties at individual face recognition in the human population.
