    J Neurosci 34:6721-35. 2014
    ..Two additional scene-responsive areas were sensitive to a subset of rectilinear features. Thus, rectilinear selectivity may serve as a crucial building block for category-selective responses in PPA and functionally related areas. ..

    Neuroimage 83:892-900. 2013
    ..These results suggest two parallel pathways for spatial encoding, including RSC and TOS respectively. Only the RSC network was involved in active spatial comparisons...

    Shahin Nasr
    Athinioula A Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging, Massachusetts General Hospital, Charlestown, Massachusetts 02129, USA
    J Neurosci 32:14921-6. 2012
    ..Thus, PPA shows distinctive fMRI selectivity for cardinal orientations across a broad range of stimuli, which may reflect a perceptual oblique effect...

    Athinioula A Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging, Massachusetts General Hospital, 149 13th St, Charlestown, MA 02129, USA
    Neuroimage 63:1743-53. 2012
    ..However, response accuracy was better correlated to recognition-driven activity in AT, compared to FFA. These data support a segregated, hierarchical model of face recognition processing, extending to the anterior temporal cortex...

    School of Cognitive Sciences, Institute for Research in Fundamental Sciences IPM, Tehran, Iran
    Atten Percept Psychophys 74:1343-54. 2012
    ..These findings support the idea that the potentials evoked after 228 ms from stimulus onset are influenced by the task rules and do not index simple sensory perception...
  6. pmc Scene-selective cortical regions in human and nonhuman primates
    Shahin Nasr
    Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging, Massachusetts General Hospital, Charlestown, Massachusetts 02129, USA
    J Neurosci 31:13771-85. 2011
    ..Overall, our findings suggest a homologous neural architecture for scene-selective regions in visual cortex of humans and nonhuman primates, analogous to the face-selective regions demonstrated earlier in these two species...

    J Neurosci 34:4123-34. 2014
    ..In addition, the magnitude of DIPS and PMv responses was correlated with the preferred level of social activity. Together, these findings suggest that this parietal-frontal network plays a role in everyday interactions with others. ..

    Shahin Nasr
    School of Cognitive Sciences, IPM, Tehran, Iran
    PLoS ONE 3:e3282. 2008
    ..These findings suggest the existence of two neural modules, responsible for irrelevant objects elimination, whose activity latency and functional connectivity depend on the number of irrelevant object...
