Visual category-selectivity for faces, places and objects emerges along different developmental trajectories.
TLDR
Critical age-related differences in the emergence of category-specific functional organization in the visual cortex are revealed and support a model of brain development in which specialization emerges from interactions between experience-dependent learning and the maturing brain. Expand
Unraveling the distributed neural code of facial identity through spatiotemporal pattern analysis
TLDR
The present study investigates the neural code of facial identity perception with the aim of ascertaining its distributed nature and informational basis, and uses a sequence of multivariate pattern analyses applied to functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) data to map out and characterize a cortical system responsible for individuation. Expand
Reduced structural connectivity in ventral visual cortex in congenital prosopagnosia
TLDR
These findings suggest that white-matter fibers in ventral occipito-temporal cortex support the integrated function of a distributed cortical network that subserves normal face processing. Expand
Detailed Exploration of Face-related Processing in Congenital Prosopagnosia: 1. Behavioral Findings
TLDR
The findings elucidate the psychological mechanisms underlying congenital prosopagnosia and support the link between configural and face processing. Expand
What Is Special about Face Recognition? Nineteen Experiments on a Person with Visual Object Agnosia and Dyslexia but Normal Face Recognition
TLDR
It is concluded that face recognition normally depends on two systems: a holistic, face-specific system that is dependent on orientationspecific coding of second-order relational features (internal) and a part-based object-recognition system, which is damaged in CK and which contributes to face recognition when the face stimulus does not satisfy the domain-specific conditions needed to activate the face system.

Parietal cortex and attention
The parietal lobe forms about 20% of the human cerebral cortex and is divided into two major regions, the somatosensory cortex and the posterior parietal cortex. Posterior parietal cortex, located atExpand
Eccentricity Bias as an Organizing Principle for Human High-Order Object Areas
TLDR
It is found that faces, letter strings, and words were mapped preferentially within the center-biased representation, which is compatible with the notion that center-periphery organization allows the optimal allocation of cortical magnification to the specific requirements of various recognition processes. Expand
Seeing it differently: visual processing in autism
TLDR
The available evidence suggests that perceptual alterations are present in ASD, independent of social function, and that a visual perceptual impairment might also contribute. Expand
A LITERATURE REVIEW AND NEW DATA SUPPORTING AN INTERACTIVE ACCOUNT OF LETTER-BY-LETTER READING.
TLDR
It is argued that the reading perform of these patients reflects the residual functioning of the same interactive system that supported normal reading premorbidly, and lexical, semantic, and higher-order orthographic information may still influence the reading patterns ofthese patients. Expand
Configural processing in autism and its relationship to face processing
TLDR
The results suggest that the bias for local processing seen in autistic individuals might have an adverse impact on their ability to process faces and objects. Expand
