Functional neuroimaging of the human brain indicates that information about salient properties of an object is stored in sensory and motor systems active when that information was acquired, suggesting that object concepts are not explicitly represented, but rather emerge from weighted activity within property-based brain regions.

Attribute-based neural substrates in temporal cortex for perceiving and knowing about objects
These findings suggest that semantic object information is represented in distributed networks that include sites for storing information about specific object attributes such as form and motion in ventral temporal cortex and lateral temporal lobes.
Neural correlates of category-specific knowledge
It is found that naming pictures of animals and tools was associated with bilateral activation of the ventral temporal lobes and Broca's area, and the brain regions active during object identification are dependent, in part, on the intrinsic properties of the object presented.
Representation of Manipulable Man-Made Objects in the Dorsal Stream
The left ventral premotor region that responded selectively to tools in the current study may be the human homolog of the monkey canonical F5 area, which responds to the visual presentation of graspable objects.

The possibility that compensatory mechanisms might enable some individuals with ASD to perform well on certain types of FER tasks in spite of atypical processing of the stimuli, and difficulties with real-life emotion recognition is discussed.
