Feature Signatures (average over nine participants)

Here you may view the average learned fMRI signatures for each of the 25 intermediate semantic features (averaged over the computational models trained independently for each of the nine participants).

Select an intermediate semantic feature: eat, touch, listen, smell, see, taste, hear, say, rub, push, lift, manipulate, move, run, approach, near, open, fill, clean, fear, drive, ride, enter, wear, break

Learned signature for intermediate semantic feature: "manipulate manipulates manipulated"

Slices depict 3D image from most inferior (top left) to most superior (bottom right). Posterior is up, anterior is down. Left side of brain is on the left of each image.
