What the experts are saying:
Infants are naturally attracted to human faces. When presented with the choice of looking at a bull's-eye, printed patterns, brightly colored disks, or the human face, they choose the face. Infants a few months old become distressed if a teacher's face is still and not expressive. They fuss and turn away.
- excerpt from .scholastic.com
At four to six months, a baby... is fascinated with faces of other babies and his/her own, as seen in a mirror; recognizes a person on sight and smiles selectively; shifts from his/her earlier preference for what is familiar to a preference for novelty (except as related to people).

"Babies have to learn everything, but as Piaget was saying, they start with a few primitive reflexes that get things going," says Sirois. For example, hardwired in the brain is an instinct that draws a baby's eyes to ahuman face."
- excerpt from Times article "What Do Babies Know" January 19, 2007
Human babies start out with the ability to recognize a wide range of faces, even among races or species different from their own, according to a new study.
