Utilizing the superior temporal and spatial resolution of intracranial electrocorticography (ECoG) data and a unique three-task experimental paradigm, Hee Joo aims to gain a more comprehensive understanding of the effects of race on face processing. She will be measuring ECoG signals directly from the fusiform face area, a region in the human visual system that is specialized for facial recognition, as human subjects view own-race and other-race faces under different task conditions.
