Greater sensitivity of the cortical face processing system to perceptually-equated face detection

S. Maher, T. Ekstrom, Y. Tong, L.D. Nickerson, B. Frederick, Y. Chen
2016 Brain Research  
Face detection, the perceptual capacity to identify a visual stimulus as a face before probing deeper into specific attributes (such as its identity or emotion), is essential for social functioning.  ...  This pattern of result indicates that FFA and OFA have a greater sensitivity to face detection signals and selectively support the initial process of face vs. non-face object perception.  ...  Ken Nakayama for support and discussion in the early stage of this study.  ...

Channel surfing in the visual brain

Paul T. Sowden, Philippe G. Schyns

A meta-analytic review of multisensory imagery identifies the neural correlates of modality-specific and modality-general imagery

Chris McNorgan
2012 Frontiers in Human Neuroscience  
Recent investigations of imagery in many new domains and the parallel development of new meta-analytic techniques now afford us a clearer picture of the relationship between the neural processes underlying  ...  This meta-analysis surveyed 65 studies investigating modality-specific imagery in auditory, tactile, motor, gustatory, olfactory, and three visual sub-domains: form, color and motion.  ...  If this information is captured in the perceptual processing stream, it would be unnecessary to encode this information at higher levels of abstraction.  ...

Act Quickly, Decide Later: Long-latency Visual Processing Underlies Perceptual Decisions but Not Reflexive Behavior

Jacob Jolij, H. Steven Scholte, Simon van Gaal, Timothy L. Hodgson, Victor A. F. Lamme
2011 Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience  
However, is such a view correct? By using a texture discrimination task, we show that the brain relies on long-latency visual processing in order to guide perceptual decisions.  ...  and conscious, representation is used to initiate a visually guided response  ...  Acknowledgments We thank Danielle Huisman and Renske Bijl for help with data collection and two anonymous referees for their helpful comments.  ...
