Face And Body Haptic Perception In Brain Damaged Patients

.

Visual analysis of faces, and nonfacial body stimuli brings about neural activity in distinct neural substrates. Although brain lesion studies show specific face processing deficits, neuropsychological evidence for defective recognition of haptic face and body parts is lacking. We hypothesized that if the ability to haptic discriminate of face and body is related to the ability of an individual to visual recognition the same body parts, then visual performance should influence haptic recognition. Moreover, using state-of-the-art lesion mapping procedures we explored the cortical areas involved in the modulation of tactile discrimination associated with face and  body.
