[10] proposed that facial information processing is mediated by a hierarchically organized and distributed neural system, composed of both a "core" and an "extended system." The core system includes three bilateral regions in occipitotemporal visual extrastriate cortex, which are in the inferior occipital gyri (concretely, the region termed Occipital Face Area or "OFA"), in the lateral fusiform gyrus (concretely, the region termed Fusiform Face Area or "FFA") and in the superior temporal sulcus (concretely, the posterior superior temporal sulcus or "pSTS").

This network includes a visual processing core system formed by the inferior occipital areas, the face fusiform area (for invariant face features) and the posterior superior temporal sulcus (for variable face features, such as eye gaze).
The pain video induced greater activation in the right posterior insular cortex, a region implicated in viscerosensory processing, and in the superior temporal sulcus, a region implicated in the perception of nonverbal social cues.
