AbstractThis study compared Chinese participants' visual discrimination of Chinese faces with that of Chinese characters, which are highly similar to faces on a variety of dimensions. Both Chinese faces and characters activated the bilateral middle fusiform with high levels of correlations. These findings suggest that although the expertise systems for faces and written symbols are known to be anatomically differentiated at the later stages of processing to serve face processing or written-symbol-specific processing purposes, they may share similar neural structures in the ventral occipitotemporal cortex at the stages of visual processing.
