This post needs to be updated. If you don't know what is correct you could just put "there was general consensus 10,20 years ago that these were the things that it did, but now that there are better imaging techniques we know far more about what it does and the below is no longer correct, besides not being anywhere specific enough to be accurate." —Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.223.59.252 (talk) 08:19, 12 December 2008 (UTC)


Whats the deal with the last 5 functions? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.158.147.36 (talk) 00:22, 4 February 2009 (UTC)

Synesthesia[edit]

Is further information regarding the role of the fusiform gyrus in synesthesia relevant? Classic studies on synesthesia by V.S. Ramachandran provide a lot of information on the fusiform gyrus and its connections, and the conclusions are substantiated by recent research as well, despite the age of the studies.

Function[edit]

Main edits should work with organization of the Function section. Disclaimer regarding relative consensus can be kept in the beginning, but the division of topics such as "processing of color information" and "face and body recognition" should be followed by their respective content. Currently, the topics are outlined and then described together in one conglomerate paragraph. Rather, each type of function should be organized into individual subsections under the larger "Function" section.

Anyone have any thoughts about this?

I feel that's nice. I don't know well, but each functions (color, face, and so on) are processed essentially within different localized sub-regions in the fusiform gyrus, aren't they? Like the diagram at the right (Perhaps the image is already outdated however, because the image was made at 2005). --Was a bee (talk) 01:28, 11 April 2015 (UTC)
I think you have a point. Brainbowboy and I tried to work on some of this by linking to the more relevant articles on the areas directly under the bold section headers. Eg: (see Color center). Maybe this addresses some of your issues! Mister Meeseeks (talk) 15:28, 24 April 2015 (UTC)
Additionally, the portions highlighted in the diagram that you provided, Was a bee, correspond to structures surrounding and interacting with the fusiform gyrus rather than structures belonging to the fusiform gyrus itself. I believe that it might be confusing to show an image highlighting exterior portions of the brain; however, I've looked at your techniques for editing images, which you posted on your user page, and they seem like they could be really helpful if you were able to show these interactions that you mentioned while clearly differentiating between the exterior structures and the fusiform gyrus.

Dyslexia[edit]

Please clarify this sentence and provide a citation.

I would recommend expanding on the dyslexia section. The sentence provided seems a bit unclear. Sailor4510 (talk) 15:58, 17 April 2015 (UTC)

Maybe discuss the relation between the two? It would be great to see the information obtained from the cited source.

I modified it slightly to make it more clear. It'd be nice if I could find more info. Mister Meeseeks (talk) 15:35, 24 April 2015 (UTC)

Intro[edit]

The intro has great info, but the last couple sentences both need citations.ExpressElevatortoHell (talk) 16:02, 17 April 2015 (UTC)

These are gone more into detial later in the article and contain citations there. I'm not certain if it's appropriate to cite them here. I could be very wrong. Mister Meeseeks (talk) 15:48, 24 April 2015 (UTC)

Original Research[edit]

Also, I'm not sure if reference #14 is an appropriate source. It's original research and it's not a review article.ExpressElevatortoHell (talk) 16:02, 17 April 2015 (UTC)

Function[edit]

"The exact functionality of the fusiform gyrus is still disputed, but there is relative consensus on its involvement in the following pathways". A citation might be good here, since you are saying that it's functionality is a disputed subject. Michoupichou (talk) 16:03, 17 April 2015 (UTC)

Anatomy[edit]

"The lateral and medial portions are separated by the shallow mid-fusiform sulcus." This seems kind of vague to me. The portions of that specific part of the brain? Michoupichou (talk) 16:04, 17 April 2015 (UTC)
