  • 1 November 2003
Research into the perception of space, time and quantity has generated three separate literatures. That number can be represented spatially is, of course, well accepted and forms a basis for researchExpand
The role of the occipital face area in the cortical face perception network
Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) studies have identified spatially distinct face-selective regions in human cortex. These regions have been linked together to form the components of aExpand
Numerical representation in the parietal lobes: abstract or not abstract?
The study of neuronal specialisation in different cognitive and perceptual domains is important for our understanding of the human brain, its typical and atypical development, and the evolutionaryExpand
TMS Evidence for the Involvement of the Right Occipital Face Area in Early Face Processing
Extensive research has demonstrated that several specialized cortical regions respond preferentially to faces. One such region, located in the inferior occipital gyrus, has been dubbed the occipitalExpand
Sensorimotor Learning Configures the Human Mirror System
Cells in the "mirror system" fire not only when an individual performs an action but also when one observes the same action performed by another agent [1-4]. The mirror system, found in premotor andExpand
Frequency-Dependent Electrical Stimulation of the Visual Cortex
Noninvasive cortical stimulation techniques, such as transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), have proved to be powerful tools for establishingExpand
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Disrupts the Perception and Embodiment of Facial Expressions
Theories of embodied cognition propose that recognizing facial expressions requires visual processing followed by simulation of the somatovisceral responses associated with the perceived expression.Expand
Triple Dissociation of Faces, Bodies, and Objects in Extrastriate Cortex
Neuroscientists have long debated whether focal brain regions perform specific cognitive functions [1-5], and the issue remains central to a current debate about visual object recognition. TheExpand
Prevalence, characteristics and a neurocognitive model of mirror-touch synaesthesia
In so-called ‘mirror-touch synaesthesia’, observing touch to another person induces a subjective tactile sensation on the synaesthete’s own body. It has been suggested that this type of synaesthesiaExpand
Associative sequence learning: the role of experience in the development of imitation and the mirror system
A core requirement for imitation is a capacity to solve the correspondence problem; to map observed onto executed actions, even when observation and execution yield sensory inputs in different modalities and coordinate frames. Expand
