The research objectives are addressed using a unique combination of invasive, intracranial EEG recordings with laminar resolution in humans to investigate local mechanisms, and whole-brain magnetoencephalographic
recordings and cutting-edge functional connectivity analysis to identify brain areas as sources and/or targets of predictions, thus relating local to global mechanisms.
Functional connectivity patterns of human magnetoencephalographic
recordings: a 'small-world' network?
Using the MagnetoEncephaloGraphic
(MEG) scanner at the York Neuroimaging Centre to test responses in the region, the researchers found that the posterior superior temporal sulcus responds so strongly to a face plus a voice that it clearly has a 'multimodal' rather than an exclusively visual function.
