Visual processing of biological motion by living organisms is crucial for adaptive social behavior and nonverbal communication. Investigations of how the perception of body motion operates in populations with developmental disorders of different etiologies can provide important insights into the neural mechanisms that underlie social perceptions. This chapter describes the role of structural and functional brain connectivity for biological motion perception and visual social cognition.

Keywords:   visual social cognition, biological motion, brain connectivity, development, developmental disorders, social cognition, neural circuitry, neural mechanisms, preterm infants, meg, autism spectrum disorders, williams syndrome, down syndrome, fragile x syndrome
