Functional neuroimaging studies have identified a set of areas in the intraparietal sulcus and dorsal precentral cortex which show a linear increase in activity with the angle of rotation across a variety of mental rotation tasks. This linear increase in activity with angular disparity suggests that these frontoparietal regions compute rotational transformations. An open question is whether rotated target stimuli automatically activate these frontoparietal regions, even if the task does not… CONTINUE READING
