Host: Prof. Dr. Angelika Lingnau, Chair of Cognitive Neuroscience


Humans are highly attuned to perceptual cues about
the people around us. Much is known about how we
read such cues from the face, yet the appearance of
the rest of the body also carries rich signals about the
states and traits of other people: sex, age, emotion,
health, strength, and others. Many disciplines have a
stake in understanding how we extract these body
signals; yet there is not a general neurocognitive
model of how the body is visually perceived. I will
speak about evidence from our behavioural, fMRI,
and TMS studies that is aimed at better
understanding the brain regions and mental
representations that support this important ability.
