Abstract :

An item-method directed forgetting paradigm for faces belonging to different ethnic and social groups is examined. The results suggest that a face memory's modulation by motivational processes is limited to faces with which we have acquired perceptual expertise. However, motivation alone is not enough to modulate memory for other-race faces and cannot fully explain the own-race bias.
