In conclusion, face perception is the most progressive
visual ability (Haxby et al., 2010). Based on the research and evaluation
presented, it would appear that Haxby et al.’s (2000) is the most sufficient
approach concerning the neural structures involved in facial perception and
facial recognition. Earlier research based on the FFA working solely to explain
farcical perceptions was inadequate, as it was made aware FFA was capable of
neural networks with other visual stimuli (Gauthier et
al., 2003). However emerging research proposing three devoted neural systems (FFA,
OFA and STS) that work simultaneously may be more of a reasonable approach Haxby et al.’s (2000). Such early
facial development may be aided by such cognitive mechanisms (Turati, 2004) and
Kadosh’s (2001) work prompts that developmental insights into face perception
can disclose much about the nature of the neural-behavioral relationship. Future
suggestions may involve investigating how the face perception network operates
as a system, gaining more insight into the specifics of the teamwork of the
three. It would also prove interesting to research the early development of facial
perception, and how it is possible for humans at such a young age to recognise
and perceive faces. This could also include research as to why, theories of evolution
and the earliest research into facial perception could be further discussed. Also
identifying any other major or minor neural structures may prove significant
and see if they migrate with the three previously discusses. Although it is
important to remember, not every object in the world can be tested. Overall, it
seems that the use of fMRI and TMS is a sufficient way to scan the brain,
however potential research may choose to use other forms of brain imaging and
assess this question again.
