Also under both conditions, the same degree of activation was observed in the right Fusiform Face Area (FFA) and the right PFCX.
(30) This face patch is thought to be homologous to the fusiform face area in humans.
Though face recognition and identification requires the integration of information from an extended network that includes the orbitofrontal cortex, inferior frontal gyrus, posterior cingulate, and inferior occipital gyri, acquired prosopagnosia maybe localised to disruption of the fusiform face area (temporal lobe) and the superior temporal sulcus [20].
A network of brain areas are responsible for facial recognition, comprising the occipital face area, fusiform face area, and a portion of the superior temporal sulcus.
Such experiments revealed that the fusiform face area was activated to a greater degree when participants viewed painted portraits, while the parahippocampal place area was activated to a greater degree when participants viewed natural scenes.
Specifically, there are three brain regions that tend to be associated with the processing of faces: one region in the superior temporal sulcus (fSTS), one region in the lateral occipital cortex ("occipital face area"--OFA), and an area located in the fusiform gyrus, called the "fusiform face area" (FFA).
[10] proposed that facial information processing is mediated by a hierarchically organized and distributed neural system, composed of both a "core" and an "extended system." The core system includes three bilateral regions in occipitotemporal visual extrastriate cortex, which are in the inferior occipital gyri (concretely, the region termed Occipital Face Area or "OFA"), in the lateral fusiform gyrus (concretely, the region termed Fusiform Face Area or "FFA") and in the superior temporal sulcus (concretely, the posterior superior temporal sulcus or "pSTS").
In the new study, the researchers found that IFJ coordinates with a brain region that processes faces, known as the fusiform face area (FFA), and a region that interprets information about places, known as the parahippocampal place area (PPA).
This brain area, called the fusiform face area, would light up with activity when subjects viewed faces, but showed less activity when subjects viewed other objects such as houses.
The role of gamma-band activity in the representation of faces: Reduced activity in the fusiform face area in congenital prosopagnosia.
However, these authors also found that responses in areas of the visual cortex specifically involved in face processing, such as the fusiform gyrus, or fusiform face area, on which detailed and conscious analysis of faces is thought to be dependent, were predominantly influenced by HSF information.
