The aim of this study was to investigate the neural correlates and the time course of implicit processing of «other race» faces effect (ORE). To this end, we utilized a masked priming paradigm. The behavioral results showed an ORE effect, with slower reaction times (RT s) for Asian than Caucasian faces. The ERP results indicated an implicit other race effect across all ERP components analyzed (P1, N170, N250, P3) and a priming effect on late components (N250, P3). These results suggest that race identity can be processed early and unconsciously in the brain to some degree of abstraction.
