Mammalian species. Hardwired.
Smiling is hardwired or learned?
What is Prosopagnosia?
Failure to perceive faces
What are the two types of prosopagnosia?
>Acquired prosopagnosia – TBI; stroke
> Developmental prosopagnosia (DP) – congenital;
possible genetic basis
People who suffer from prosopagnosia will reply on what to tell people apart?
Gate. The way people walk and move their hands/arms and any other mannerisms/hair.
What is face inversion effect?
We are disproportionately bad
at recognising an inverted face,
compared with other objects
We recognise people how?
In groups on a singular level.
Patients with prospagnosia have been damaged where?
In the occipitol area.
Where did scientists find cells that responded to photos of macaque monkeys?
Identifying face cells in the superior temporal sulcus of the macaque monkey.
FFA is what?
Fusiform face area.
Do patients with prosopagnosia still have activation in the FFA?
CP‟s have normal activity in FFA (despite abnormal face processing!)
Electrophysiological response to faces can be seen in which brain region?
the N170 response
N170 and FFA are the same with face recognition?
NO they activate in different areas.
Is FFA only active and specific to faces?
NO FFA is also active for categories for
which we are “experts". Bird expert vs car experts activate FFA when looking at bird and cars
Who was WJ?
patient who had a stoke and developed prosopagnosia. He was an expert at recognising sheep. He could not recognise famous faces but was still better at recognising sheep.
What is the N170 telling us?
N170 is definitely specific to faces – but may be caused by another part of the network yet to be
properly analysed.
Are faces the only type of stimulus we process separately?
In the parahippocampal place area (PPA) and Retrosplenial cortex also involved in scene processing.
What is the parahippocampal place area (PPA)?
Cannot navigate in or reproduce the
spatial structure of new environments and those lived in subsequent to the injury
– but can produce old environments well.
What is the Extrastriate body area (EBA)?
EBA is selective to bodies and body parts. (body language)
What is associated with the visual word form area?
alexia - can't see or process words.
What are some patterns people may experience?
Words and objects
Face and objects.
Dual process model of object recognition?
Dual process model of object recognition
What is a holistic analysis?
Faces and objects.
What is analysis by parts?
Objects and words.
