This correspondence in visual behaviour enhances the development of other capacities, for example, shifting attention in space, regulation of the field of attention, visual recognition, and also visual naming (Grossmann and Johnson 2007; Tasker and Schmidt 2008).

To gain skill in identification of social signals, humans pay particular attention to other humans, in particular members of their groups, so as to acquire valuable social information about their identity, emotions, and likely intent. Relevant social stimuli are processed by two distinct but integrated pathways and translated into ‘social’ signals: a subcortical route mediating crude but fast orienting responses, and a subcortical-cortical ‘social system’ that mediates and controls adaptive and flexible context- and experience-dependent responses and complex social behaviour (Klein et al.
