Abstract

A common practice in fMRI research is to examine changes in functional connectivity patterns under different behavioral tasks within and between populations. Observed patterns range from under to hyper connectivity between specified regions, but no obvious account is available for such heterogeneity. The current study sets to examine functional connectivity and its relation to univariate analysis and to behavior within the face-responsive network, using it as a model domain. The face network provides an ideal test-bed for such investigation as it is relatively well characterized at both the behavioral and neural levels in humans. The face inversion effect, in which performance is typically better for upright compared to inverted face, is utilized to manipulate behavior and concomitant network properties.
