Abstract

Notes that many studies have shown that people remember faces of their own race better than faces of other races. The authors investigated the neural substrates of same-race memory superiority using functional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) (fMRI). 19 European-American (EA) and African-American (AA) males underwent fMRI while they viewed photographs of AA males, EA males and objects under intentional encoding conditions. Recognition memory was superior for same-race vs other-race faces. Individually defined areas in the fusiform region that responded preferentially to faces had greater response to same-race vs other-race faces. Across both groups, memory differences between same-race and other-race faces correlated with activation in left fusiform cortex and right parahippocampal and hippocampal areas. These results suggest that differential activation in fusiform regions contributes to same-race memory superiority. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2011 APA, all rights reserved)
