It connects not only with the higher visual areas, but it also receives feedback exclusively from the motion-sensitive areas of the extrastriate cortex, the superior temporal sulcus, the superior temporal polysensory areas, the inferotemporal cortex, the parahippocampal gyrus, the lateral intraparietal area, the frontal eyefields, and the auditory cortex (Tong, 2003).
In particular, higher activity in two regions--the intraparietal sulcus and the inferior frontal junction--meant that a person was less likely to crumble.
The combination of fearful faces and averted gazes activates areas related to gaze shifting (superior temporal and intraparietal sulci) and fear processing (amygdala, hypothalamus, pallidum).
For math, better scores were linked to more mature patterns in the intraparietal sulcus (IPS), a region of the brain known to be involved in the processing of numbers.
Over the years, his team's work on categorization has zeroed in on the lateral intraparietal (LIP) area.
By watching the intraparietal sulcus (IPS), located within the dorsal frontoparietal network, the researchers were able to note not only whether their subjects found the objects, but also how confident they were in their finds.
Using electrodes, the researchers then recorded brain activity across 100 neurons in the monkeys' lateral intraparietal cortex - the brain region associated with eye movement - as they performed the task.
This consistency could be explained by activity in a specific region of the brain called the lateral intraparietal area (LIP).
