Electrophysiological Studies of Face Perception in Humans
TLDR
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.
Differential Sensitivity of Human Visual Cortex to Faces, Letterstrings, and Textures: A Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging Study
TLDR
Different regions of ventral extrastriate cortex are specialized for processing the perceptual features of faces and letterstrings, and that these regions are intermediate between earlier processing in striate and peristriates cortex, and later lexical, semantic, and associative processing in downstream cortical regions.
Electrophysiological studies of human face perception. I: Potentials generated in occipitotemporal cortex by face and non-face stimuli.
TLDR
Event-related potentials evoked by visual stimuli in 98 patients in whom electrodes were placed directly upon the cortical surface to monitor medically intractable seizures are described, suggesting that the human ventral object recognition system is segregated into functionally discrete regions.
Temporal Cortex Activation in Humans Viewing Eye and Mouth Movements
TLDR
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.
Potentials evoked in human and monkey cerebral cortex by stimulation of the median nerve. A review of scalp and intracranial recordings.
TLDR
Current knowledge of SEPs generated in cerebral cortex by stimulation of the median nerve is summarized, with the conclusion that these potentials are generated in contralateral somatosensory cortex in areas 3b and 1, in contrast to the conclusion of many previous studies that SEPs recorded from the frontal scalp aregenerated in motor cortex and other frontal lobe areas.
Word recognition in the human inferior temporal lobe
TLDR
This work studied visual processing of words and word-like stimuli (letter-strings) by recording field potentials directly from the human inferior temporal lobe and showed that two discrete portions of the fusiform gyrus responded preferentially to letter-strings.
Face recognition in human extrastriate cortex.
TLDR
The results suggest that discrete regions of inferior extrastriate visual cortex, varying in location between individuals, are specialized for the recognition of faces.
Face-Specific Processing in the Human Fusiform Gyrus
TLDR
It is demonstrated that both faces and flowers activate large and partially overlapping regions of inferior extrastriate cortex, and a smaller region, located primarily in the right lateral fusiform gyrus, is activated specifically by faces.
