  1. Dissecting the neural circuits for face perception in macaque inferotemporal cort
    Doris Tsao; Fiscal Year: 2009
    ..Faces are by far the most socially significant class of visual stimuli that we perceive, and our results may shed new light on disorders of social cognition such as autism and social anxiety disorder. ..
