What ability is associated with a special stimulus that the visual system is designed to detect/identify faster? What part of the brain is responsible for this?Direct gaze. Superior Temporal Gyrus.
The pop-out effect is assoicated with this ability, related to this part of the brainGaze detection, the superior temporal gyrus and amygdala

Question Answer
Gaze monitoring, gaze following, goal detection and joint attention are all parts of this broader abilityUnderstanding Social Actions
