Abstract: Similarity takes a crucial role in various kinds of cognitive processes. In the present study, we investigated the neural activities during similarity judgments on 1225 pairs of images using the near-infrared spectroscopy. The predictability of similarity judgments were analyzed with a hierarchical Bayesian framework applied on the neural activities. It revealed that the neural activities located in a prefrontal region had a sharp increase prior to onsets of subjects’ responses. Given the findings, we discussed about a key process, information integration of various domains, underlying similarity judgments.
