Abstract: 

The objective of this paper is to demonstrate that neural reuse provides greater explanatory value than modular perspectives on cognitive architecture. A case study of the Fusiform Face Area will be carried out, where I will use a neural reuse perspective to search for a ‘working’ that supports uses beyond that of face recognition.
