Abstract

Recently, fMRI and MEG studies have confirmed that a ventrolateral somatosensory pathway and occipitotemporal regions are involved in tactile object recognition (TOR) [3,4]. However, little is known about whether cortical specialization occurs within the TOR system. We investigated whether tactually explored faces activate different cortical regions than tactually explored objects.
