The differential sensitivity of N170 to eyes in isolation suggests that N170 may reflect the activation of an eye-sensitive region of cortex, and the voltage distribution of N 170 over the scalp is consistent with a neural generator located in the occipitotemporal sulcus lateral to the fusiform/inferior temporal region that generates N200.
Guidelines for using human event-related potentials to study cognition: recording standards and publication criteria.
New guidelines for recording ERPs are presented and criteria for publishing the results are presented, which allow different studies to be compared readily.

The present data corroborated the functional neuro-anatomy of word recognition systems suggested by other neuroimaging methods and described their timecourse, supporting a cascade-type process that involves different but interconnected neural modules, each responsible for a different level of processing word-related information.
STRUCTURAL ENCODING AND IDENTIFICATION IN FACE PROCESSING: ERP EVIDENCE FOR SEPARATE MECHANISMS
It is concluded that although reflected by the N170, the structural encoding mechanism is not influenced by the face recognition and identification processes, and the negative component modulated by face familiarity is associated with the semantic activity involved in the identification of familiar faces.

Results suggest that a superior temporal region centered in the STS is preferentially involved in the perception of gaze direction and mouth movements, and may be functionally related to nearby superior temporal regions thought to be involved in lip-reading and in the Perception of hand and body movement.
The Wheat VRN2 Gene Is a Flowering Repressor Down-Regulated by Vernalization
Angry, Disgusted, or Afraid?
By monitoring eye movements, it is demonstrated that characteristic fixation patterns previously thought to be determined solely by the facial expression are systematically modulated by emotional context already at very early stages of visual processing, even by the first time the face is fixated.
Structural Encoding of Human and Schematic Faces: Holistic and Part-Based Processes
The results suggest that early face processing in the human brain is subserved by a multiple-component neural system in which both whole-face configurations and face parts are processed.
Domain specificity versus expertise: factors influencing distinct processing of faces
Extrinsic and intrinsic systems in the posterior cortex of the human brain revealed during natural sensory stimulation.
It is proposed that naturalistic stimuli reveal a fundamental neuroanatomical partition of the human posterior cortex into 2 global networks: an "extrinsic" system, comprising areas associated with the processing of external inputs, and an "intrinsi system, largely overlapping with the task-negative, default-mode network.
