Intersubject Synchronization of Cortical Activity During Natural Vision
A striking level of voxel-by-voxel synchronization between individuals is found, not only in primary and secondary visual and auditory areas but also in association cortices, which reveals a surprising tendency of individual brains to “tick collectively” during natural vision.
Coupling Between Neuronal Firing, Field Potentials, and fMRI in Human Auditory Cortex
Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) is an important tool for investigating human brain function, but the relationship between the hemodynamically based fMRI signals in the human brain and…

Verbal communication is a joint activity; however, speech production and comprehension have primarily been analyzed as independent processes within the boundaries of individual brains. Here, we…
Center–periphery organization of human object areas
It is hypothesized that brain regions representing object categories that rely on detailed central scrutiny are more strongly associated with processing of central information, compared to representations of objects that may be recognized by more peripheral information (such as buildings or scenes).

There is a hierarchy of progressively longer temporal receptive windows in the human brain, similar to the known cortical hierarchy of spatial receptive fields, which identifies brain regions responsive to sensory information accumulated over different time scales.

The results suggest that the time scale of processing is a functional property that may provide a general organizing principle for the human cerebral cortex.

The results reveal the existence of a common spatial organization for memories in high-level cortical areas, and that neural patterns during perception are altered systematically across people into shared memory representations for real-life events.
Brain-to-brain coupling: a mechanism for creating and sharing a social world
Dynamic reconfiguration of the default mode network during narrative comprehension
Inter-subject functional correlation (ISFC), which isolates stimulus-dependent inter-regional correlations between brains exposed to the same stimulus, is introduced, which opens new avenues for linking brain network dynamics to stimulus features and behaviour.
