Not blind to emotion: neural mechanisms of emotion recognition without awareness and visual cortex
Tuesday 22 March @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm (Le Gros Clarke Lecture Theatre)
Marco Tamietto from Tilburg University will be speaking on whether emotion recognition can arise in individuals who lack a functional primary visual cortex. He was part of a collaboration that recently published results that a patient suffering from complete, bilateral damage to his primary visual cortex was nonetheless able to process the looming motion of lights in other regions of the brain.
