The role of the right temporoparietal junction in attention and social interaction as revealed by ALE meta-analysis

Description: We conducted activation likelihood estimation (ALE) meta-analyses to test competing hypotheses about the functional organization of the right temporoparietal junction (rTPJ). A conjunction analysis across ALE meta-analyses delineating regions consistently recruited by reorienting of attention and false belief studies revealed the anterior rTPJ, suggesting an overarching role of this specific region. An anatomical difference analysis revealed the posterior rTPJ as converging more with false belief than with reorienting of attention tasks. Additional meta-analytic connectivity mapping (MACM) and resting-state functional connectivity (RSFC) analyses showed that the posterior rTPJ has connectivity patterns with typical ToM (Theory of Mind) regions, whereas the anterior part of rTPJ co-activates with the attentional network.
