Contextual Gaze Following

Published on by Marius Gorner
Our paper captures work deploying fMRI to identify brain structures and mechanisms that allow us to pinpoint the object attended by the other out of the many hit by her/his gaze vector. Our results suggest that an area at the border between premotor and prefrontal cortex plays a major role in providing the complementary information needed by the temporo-parietal underpinnings of gaze following to shift the observer´s attention to the correct object. Our results support the interplay of a network of distributed elements with distinct functional contributions allowing us to deploy Joint Attention – a key underpinning of viable social behavior and a full-fledged Theory of the (other´s) Mind.
