The fusiform face area, an area of the visual cortex responsible for facial processing, develops much earlier than previously believed.
Scene selective cortical regions are more sensitive to age than face-selective regions when it comes to memory and perception.
Prosopagnosia, or "face-blindness", involves an entire network, not just one area of the brain. The findings may shed light on poor facial processing abilities associated with autism.
The connectivity between the face processing network and other networks associated with the processing of visual, social and auditory cues help predict how well we remember a familiar face.
A new study reports older adults exhibit greater eye movements, but this does not correlate with an increase in brain activity patterns. Researchers say, while the eyes and brain are taking in environmental information, the link to creating memories of what is seen weakens over a life time.
Researchers report the amygdala may play a bigger role in facial recognition than previously thought. According to a new study, the amygdala responds more specifically to images of the face than the fusiform face area does.
According to a new study, the thickness of the fusiform face area can predict a person's ability to recognize faces and objects.
A new study provides evidence for a face selective region in the temporal cortex of dogs.
Neurons in the specific brain area responsible for processing faces are too broadly "tuned" in some patients with autism, leading to difficulties in discriminating between the facial features of different individuals, a new study suggests.
