The distributed human neural system for face perception
A model for the organization of this system that emphasizes a distinction between the representation of invariant and changeable aspects of faces is proposed and is hierarchical insofar as it is divided into a core system and an extended system. Expand
Distributed and Overlapping Representations of Faces and Objects in Ventral Temporal Cortex
The functional architecture of the object vision pathway in the human brain was investigated using functional magnetic resonance imaging to measure patterns of response in ventral temporal cortexExpand
Beyond mind-reading: multi-voxel pattern analysis of fMRI data
How researchers are using multi-voxel pattern analysis methods to characterize neural coding and information processing in domains ranging from visual perception to memory search is reviewed. Expand
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. Expand
Distinct representations of eye gaze and identity in the distributed human neural system for face perception
Perception of face identity and eye gaze in the human brain was mediated more by regions in the inferior occipital and fusiform gyri, and perception ofEye-gaze perception seemed to recruit the spatial cognition system in the intraparietal sulcus to encode the direction of another's gaze and to focus attention in that direction.

Spatial Pattern Analysis of Functional Brain Images Using Partial Least Squares
Partial least squares serves as an important extension by extracting new information from imaging data that is not accessible through other currently used univariate and multivariate image analysis tools. Expand
A Developmental Functional MRI Study of Prefrontal Activation during Performance of a Go-No-Go Task
Although inhibitory processes have typically been associated with more ventral or orbital frontal regions, the current study revealed activation that was distributed across both dorsolateral and orbitofrontal cortices, consistent with animal and human lesion studies. Expand
An area specialized for spatial working memory in human frontal cortex.
Using functional magnetic resonance imaging in humans, an area in the superior frontal sulcus was identified that is specialized for spatial working memory. Expand
Age-related changes in cortical blood flow activation during visual processing of faces and location
The results demonstrate that reliable age-related changes during visual processing can be found in rCBF patterns, suggesting more efficient use of occipital visual areas by younger subjects and more reliance by older subjects on one or more cortical networks, particularly for spatial vision, perhaps to compensate for reduced processing efficiency of Occipital cortex. Expand
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. Expand
