Many socially significant biological stimuli are polymodal, and information processing is enhanced for polymodal over unimodal stimuli. The human superior temporal sulcus (STS) region has been implicated in processing socially relevant stimuli--particularly those derived from biological motion such as mouth movements. Single unit studies in monkeys have demonstrated that regions of STS are polysensory--responding to visual, auditory and somato-sensory stimuli, and human neuroimaging studies… CONTINUE READING
