THE SIZE BIAS: DOES IT EXIST, AND HOW WOULD WE EXAMINE IT IN THE BRAIN
thesisposted on 29.10.2021, 12:22 by Daniel Lucas LarranagaDaniel Lucas Larranaga
Abstract: Many regions of the cortex have been identified to be specifically selective for different features. For example, visually presented stimuli proceed, via both the dorsal “where” and ventral “what” streams, before converging in the frontal cortex for decision making processes. However, several subregions of both streams have been identified that demonstrate selectivity on many semantic dimensions, such as size. Most of the studies examining regions selectively activated in maintenance of semantic size have employed the use of visually presented images. In the present, however, study we provide a review of relevant literature, proposed techniques, and a list of word stimuli that may help elucidate the multivariate neural processing of several semantic dimensions.
