Human bodies provide a particularly rich source of visual information. Whereas most previous studies have focused on the neural mechanisms during the perception and recognition of human bodies, the aim of the present study was to investigate the time course and location of brain activation during mental imagery of human bodies. When participants were asked to imagine themselves in the position of a visually presented human body as seen from many different angles and at two orientations (upright… CONTINUE READING
