The fusiform gyrus is part of the temporal lobe in Brodmann Area 37. It is also known as the (discontinuous) occipitotemporal gyrus. Other sources have the fusiform gyrus above the occipitotemporal gyrus and underneath the parahippocampal gyrus.
"There is still some dispute over the functionalities of this area, but there is relative consensus on the following: processing of color information; face and body recognition (see Fusiform face area); word recognition; number recognition [questionable: may only be as a result of a global response of any generic recognition tasks, further statistical evidence needed]; within-category identification"

2. User can drag the nodes to rearrange the layout of the network. Click the node will enter the report page of the node.
Right-click will show also the menus to link to the report page of the node and remove the node and related edges.
Hover the node will show the level of the node and hover the edge will show the evidence/description of the edge.
3. The network is generated using Cytoscape Web
