PURPOSE To investigate the distribution of co-activation patterns of the recently identified ventral visual areas FG1 and FG2 of the posterior fusiform gyrus using the novel meta-analytic approach PaMiNI (Pattern Mining in NeuroImaging). MATERIALS AND METHODS All neuroimaging experiments reporting activation foci within FG1 or FG2 were retrieved from the BrainMap database. The stereotaxic activation foci in standard reference space were analyzed with PaMiNI. Here, Gaussian mixture modeling…

Functional characterization and differential coactivation patterns of two cytoarchitectonic visual areas on the human posterior fusiform gyrus
Findings indicate that functional lateralization of area FG2 relies on a different pattern of connectivity rather than side‐specific cytoarchitectonic features, which supports the concept of a common involvement in a core network subserving different cognitive tasks.
Cytoarchitectonical analysis and probabilistic mapping of two extrastriate areas of the human posterior fusiform gyrus
Two novel cytoarchitectonical areas, FG1 and FG2, were identified on the posterior fusiform gyrus of the human extrastriate cortex and comparison with recent functional imaging studies yielded that both areas are located within the object-related visual cortex.
Ventral visual cortex in humans: Cytoarchitectonic mapping of two extrastriate areas
These maps can now be used to identify the anatomical correlates of functional activations observed in neuroimaging experiments to enable a more informed investigation into the many open questions regarding the organization of the human visual cortex.
Receptor architecture of visual areas in the face and word-form recognition region of the posterior fusiform gyrus
The results support the cytoarchitectonic segregation of FG1 and FG2 into two distinct cortical areas and suggest their putative function as object recognition regions due to the similarity of their receptor fingerprints with those of areas of the ventral visual stream.
Cytoarchitectonic identification and probabilistic mapping of two distinct areas within the anterior ventral bank of the human intraparietal sulcus
This cytoarchitectonic mapping study was to determine whether consistent regions and borders can be found within the cortex of the anterior IPS in a population of 10 post‐mortem human brains and concludes that the human IPS has a more finely grained parcellation than shown in Brodmann's map.
Cytoarchitecture of the human lateral occipital cortex: mapping of two extrastriate areas hOc4la and hOc4lp
Convergent evidence from their location, topography, size, functional domains and connectivity indicates that hOC4la and hOc4lp are the potential anatomical correlates of the functionally defined lateral occipital areas LO-1 and LO-2.
Distributed hierarchical processing in the primate cerebral cortex.
A summary of the layout of cortical areas associated with vision and with other modalities, a computerized database for storing and representing large amounts of information on connectivity patterns, and the application of these data to the analysis of hierarchical organization of the cerebral cortex are reported on.
The visual word form area: spatial and temporal characterization of an initial stage of reading in normal subjects and posterior split-brain patients.
The findings provide direct support for the main components of the classical model of reading and help specify their timing and cerebral substrates.
