The neural basis of impossible figures: Evidence from an fMRI study of the two-pronged trident

Publication year: 2011 Source: Neuroscience Letters, Available online 9 December 2011 Wu Xin, Meng Zhang, Jiang Qiu In the present study, we used the two-pronged trident task to investigate the neural basis of impossible figures processing by using event-related functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI). Our fMRI results showed that there were no brain regions with significantly stronger responses to Possible Condition than to Impossible Condition. However, Impossible Condition showed significantly more activation in the right inferior temporal gyrus (ITG), the fusiform gyrus (FG) and the right superior parietal gyrus (SPG)
