- Levels of categorization in visual recognition studied using functional magnetic resonance imagingI Gauthier
Department of Psychology, Yale University, PO Box 208205, New Haven, Connecticut 06520 8205, USA
Curr Biol 7:645-51. 1997..We have used echo-planar functional magnetic resonance imaging to compare brain activation for the matching of non-face objects with subordinate-level and basic-level descriptors...
- Training 'greeble' experts: a framework for studying expert object recognition processesI Gauthier
Department of Psychology, Yale University, New Haven, CT 06520, USA
Vision Res 38:2401-28. 1998..Greeble recognition by a simple neural-network model is also evaluated, and the model is found to account surprisingly well for both generalization and individuation using a single set of processes and representations...
- Activation of the middle fusiform 'face area' increases with expertise in recognizing novel objectsI Gauthier
Department of Diagnostic Radiology, Yale University Medical School, Fitkin Basement, 333 Cedar Street, New Haven, Connecticut 06510, USA
Nat Neurosci 2:568-73. 1999..The same areas were also more activated in experts than in novices during passive viewing of greebles. Expertise seems to be one factor that leads to specialization in the face area...
- Can face recognition really be dissociated from object recognition?I Gauthier
Department of Psychology, Yale University, P O Box 208205, New Haven, CT 06520 8205, USA
J Cogn Neurosci 11:349-70. 1999..This result raises questions regarding neuropsychological evidence for the modularity of face recognition, as well as its theoretical and methodological foundations...
- Expertise for cars and birds recruits brain areas involved in face recognitionI Gauthier
Department of Psychology, Vanderbilt University, Wilson Hall, Nashville, Tennessee 37240, USA
Nat Neurosci 3:191-7. 2000..The results suggest that level of categorization and expertise, rather than superficial properties of objects, determine the specialization of the FFA...
- Abnormal ventral temporal cortical activity during face discrimination among individuals with autism and Asperger syndromeR T Schultz
Child Study Center, Yale University, New Haven, Conn 06520 7900, USA
Arch Gen Psychiatry 57:331-40. 2000..Therefore, it is of considerable interest that individuals with autism and related conditions have selective deficits in face recognition (sparing nonface object recognition)...
- The fusiform "face area" is part of a network that processes faces at the individual levelI Gauthier
Department of Psychology, Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN 37240, USA
J Cogn Neurosci 12:495-504. 2000....
- The development of face expertiseI Gauthier
Department of Psychology, Vanderbilt University, Wilson Hall, Nashville, TN 37240, USA
