    Reginald B Adams
    The Pennsylvania State University, University Park, PA 16802, USA
    J Cogn Neurosci 22:97-108. 2010

  6. doi request reprint The neural basis of categorical face perception: graded representations of face gender in fusiform and orbitofrontal cortices
    Jonathan B Freeman
    Department of Psychology, Tufts University, Medford, MA 02155, USA
    Cereb Cortex 20:1314-22. 2010
    ..The attention-independent graded representations of face gender in fusiform and orbitofrontal cortices reveal how objective face parameters are encoded and transformed into subjective categorically warped perceptions in the human brain...

    Lori N Scott
    Department of Psychology, Penn State University, University Park, PA 16802, USA

    Michael T Stevenson
    Department of Psychology, The Pennsylvania State University, USA

    Department of Psychology, Tufts University, USA
    Emotion 11:1439-44. 2011
