CE Course Description
Recently, a differential recruitment of brain areas throughout the distributed neural system for face perception has been found in social phobic patients as compared to healthy control subjects. This advanced CE course explores whether functional connectivity networks among brain regions within the distributed system for face perception also would differ between social phobic patients and healthy controls.

CE Course Objectives
1. Investigate how the differences in brain functional connectivity is related to differences in behavioral performance.
2. Identify the brain regions for which social phobic patients and healthy controls showed different patters of functional connectivity with face perception.
3. Describe what is involved with the cognitive ability of face perception.
