Dissociations between the horizontal and dorsoventral axes in body-size perception.

Hashimoto T, Iriki A - Eur. J. Neurosci. (2013)

Bottom Line: Subjective perception of own-body size was associated with bilateral inferior parietal activity.In contrast, other-body judgments showed pre-supplementary motor and superior parietal activity.Expansion in the dorsoventral direction was associated with the left fusiform gyrus and the right inferior parietal lobule, whereas horizontal expansions were associated with activity in the bilateral somatosensory area.

The left fusiform body area (FBA, left) and the right inferior parietal lobule (IPL; right) exhibited greater responses to body images of dorsoventral thickness than those of horizontal width. In the bottom panel, the contrast estimates for the FBA (MNI coordinates of x, y, z: −32, −28, −22; or a nearest peak) corresponding to each body image are shown. The color bar shows the t-value.

Mentions: The left fusiform gyrus and the right IPL were associated with the perception of body images of dorsoventral thickness and their expansions (Fig. 3).
