Peripheral Face viewing (4th post)

The gif in this link is the absolute perfect example of how much of a part the fovea really plays in fine detail and facial recognition, you can easily see that when you only look at the cross in the gif while the faces flash, that the faces begin to look ridiculously distorted, horrific even. This distortion is due to the lack of concentrated information going into our visual cortex about the faces, and therefore the multiple faces merge together or distort wildly, creating something straight from nightmares.
