Time course of superior temporal sulcus activity in response to eye gaze: a combined fMRI and MEG study.
TLDR
The human superior temporal sulcus showed higher activity in response to averted versus straight gazes during the 150-200 ms period, peaking at around 170 ms, after stimulus onset, indicating involvement of the human STS in rapid processing of the eye gaze of another individual.
Perception of eye gaze direction in a case of acquired prosopagnosia
The ability to perceive the direction of eye gaze is critical in social settings. Brain lesions in the superior temporal sulcus (STS) impair this ability. We investigated the perception of gaze
Gaze detection and the cortical processing of faces: Evidence from infants and adults
Abstract Faces, as a class of objects, have been studied extensively in order to understand how the human visual system recognizes and represents objects. In this paper we studied the ontogeny of the
Neuronal substrates of gaze following in monkeys
TLDR
The results support the idea that the eyes developed a new social function in human evolution, most likely to support cooperative mutual social interactions building on a phylogenetically old STS module for the processing of head cues.
Dissociable roles of the superior temporal sulcus and the intraparietal sulcus in joint attention: A functional magnetic resonance imaging study
TLDR
The results show that the posterior part of the STS region and the cuneus are specifically involved in extracting and using detailed directional information from the eyes of another person to redirect one's own gaze and establish joint attention.

Detection of directed gaze in rhesus monkeys (Macaca mulatta).
TLDR
The results indicate that rhesus monkeys are sensitive to the directed gaze of humans, suggesting that monkeys pay more attention to the human whose attention is directed to them.

TLDR
The visual disorder following removal of visual area V4 strikingly resembles the clinical disorder of mild cerebral achromatopsia with associated apperceptive agnosia for objects and patterns.
Neurones responsive to faces in the temporal cortex: studies of functional organization, sensitivity to identity and relation to perception.
TLDR
A functional organization of cells responsive to the sight of different views of the head that was found to be highly selective for particular individuals that were familiar to the monkey with selectivity persisting across a great variety of viewing conditions.
Neurons in the cortex of the temporal lobe and in the amygdala of the monkey with responses selective for faces.
TLDR
There are populations of neurons in the temporal lobe of the macaque which appear to be specialised to respond to faces, and it has been shown that in many cases (77% of one sample), these neurons are sensitive to differences between faces.

Left hemispheric functional compensation in prosopagnosia? A tachistoscopic study with unilaterally lesioned patients.
TLDR
Left hemispheric compensation for prosopagnosia in patients with isolated right posterior lesions is investigated with a series of tachistoscopic matching experiments, finding both patient groups had no difficulty in matching objects and words, even at short exposure durations.
Perception of another person's looking behavior.
TLDR
The classical senses in normal use require not only receptors but also muscles for adjusting them, and the sense-organ adjustments are a form of observable behavior.
Prosopagnosia and facial discrimination.
Prosopagnosia and agnosia for noncanonical views. An autopsied case.
TLDR
This first report of a direct clinicopathological correlation between a fresh right posterior lesion and prosopagnosia demonstrates that bilateral involvement of the visual system is not a prerequisite for prosopgnosia.
