The wide-ranging implications of her examine will attraction specially to students and scholars of cognitive neuroscience, but in addition to these operating in such comparable fields as info and communique expertise, laptop technological know-how, animation, and robotics"

Cognitive neuropsychology of the 1980s explicitly refused any 1:1 mapping, maintaining that even in the case of patients with known lesions, the dissociation method related strictly to the cognitive basis of behavioral phenomena (Shallice, 1988). The functional face perception model quickly became a blueprint for the organization of face processing in the brain. The notion of structural encoding was then almost spontaneously translated into neural terms and served as a looking glass for understanding data from subjects with selective brain damage and specific face-recognition deficits.

In this type of study, two modalities are typically combined to create emotionally congruent and incongruent face–voice pairs in order to provide a window into the integration process (de Gelder & Bertelson, 2003). Note that the argument concerning the naturalness and ecological validity of considering visual stimuli in a multisensory context applies just as well to the whole body as it does to the face alone. A beginning singer trying to sing only with the upper body will quickly experience the limitations of that approach.

2003). Another effect often used in the face literature to establish that perception is primarily based on the overall configuration is the composite effect, which also obtains for body perception. Neuropsychology Since the earliest days of understanding the mental faculties of the brain, patients with specific functional loss as a consequence of the sudden onset of brain damage have been our best source of research hypotheses. With the advent of fMRI it briefly looked as if a better, faster, and more reliable road was now available.
