Results of structural and functional brain imaging. a inferior view of the cortical surface reconstructed from high-resolution structural MRI, depicting that the fusiform gyri show no sign of being abnormal; b results for the “faces vs. landscapes” fMRI localizer task; c results from the “faces vs. hands” fMRI localizer task. fMRI results are shown on the inflated cortical surface, with face activity shown in warm colors and activity for the respective control condition shown in cool colors. Results are thresholded at t = 3. For both paradigms, strong bilateral activity can be seen for the face condition, in the lateral parts of the fusiform gyri. The anterior clusters in the fusiform gyri most likely correspond to the “fusiform face area” and the posterior clusters in the lateral occipital cortex most likely correspond to the “occipital face area”. Unthresholded normalized surface maps are available online:
