Abstract(in English) Human faces have structurally changed through growth from childhood to adulthood. Three rating experiments were conducted to investigate whether we can recognize the facial identities between child-faces (about 5 years old) and adult-faces (about 20 years old). Subjects were female undergraduates. All experiments showed the mean rating scores of same person pairs were significantly higher than the ones for different person pairs. These results suggest we can recognize facial identity between child-face and adult-face. Experiment 2 showed familiarity with adult-faces improved the facial identification. In experiment 3, the facial identification improved in the case that both adult-faces and child-faces were judged distinctive.
