Modulation of the face- and body-selective visual regions by the motion and emotion of point-light face and body stimuli.

Abstract:

Neural regions selective for facial or bodily form also respond to facial or bodily motion in highly form-degraded point-light displays. Yet it is unknown whether these face-selective and body-selective regions are sensitive to human motion regardless of stimulus type (faces and bodies) or to the specific motion-related cues characteristic of their proprietary stimulus categories. Using fMRI, we show that facial and bodily motions activate selectively those populations of neurons that code fo...
