Analysis of the degree of overlap between functional magnetic resonance imaging-derived regions of interest (ROIs) has been used to assess the functional convergence and/or segregation of category-selective brain areas. An examination of the extant literature reveals no consistent usage for how such overlap is calculated, nor any systematic comparison(More)
Human electrophysiological studies have found that the processing of faces and other objects differs reliably at approximately 150 ms after stimulus onset, faces giving rise to a larger occipitotemporal field potential on the scalp, termed the N170. We hypothesize that visual expertise with nonface objects leads to the recruitment of early face-related(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to compare the different features that musicians and non-musicians rely upon when they discern consonant and dissonant intervals. Previous studies have addressed this issue from the perspective of either the frequency ratio (Western music theory) or the frequency difference (psychoacoustics), but have not considered both(More)
This study explores the relationship between maternal love and brain regions by using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). Also, a novel pattern analysis for fMRI based on the discovered brain regions is proposed in this work. Firstly, to identify which region responds to stimuli, a statistical t-test is used after the scan. Based on these(More)
The flashed face distortion (FFD) effect was coined by Tangen, Murphy, and Thompson (2011) in their second-place winner of the 2012 Best Illusion of the Year Contest. The FFD arises when people view various eye-aligned faces that are sequentially flashed in the visual periphery, and gradually the faces appear to be deformed and grotesque. In this functional(More)
