Visual MMN (vMMN) has been found to several low-level visual features such as orientation or color. In addition, it has been associated to change detection in complex visual features including facial expressions, gender of face, and human hands. We will present a brief review of the findings on vMMN to changes in higher-level stimuli such as faces. The results will be discussed in the framework of automatic detection of regularity violation.
