This chapter focuses on the advances in functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) methods and discusses their role in understanding the functional organization of the human ventral stream. Functional MRI studies provide fundamental knowledge about the brain regions involved in object and face recognition. The chapter addresses several questions related to the underlying neural representations and presents figures related to brain regions, including object-selective regions in the human brain, the relationship between lateral occipital complex activation, and recognition. It provides information on the method of fMRI-adaptation (fMRI-A), multivoxel pattern analysis (MVPA), and high-resolution fMRI (HR-fMRI).

Keywords:   fMRI, lateral occipital complex, ventral stream, multivoxel pattern analysis, high-resolution fMRI, fMRI-adaptation
