ABSTRACT. In the pandemic learning room, our bodies are pulled out of the chemistry that obtains in somatic presence. They are curtailed into cut-off talking heads, and the amygdala works intensively to accept the multiplied focalisation of human faces. The brain area that processes the meaning and topography of face identity – faces we know – and facial expressions, the amygdala thus becomes another perceptual mechanism breached by overload: our faces are not faces so much as interface functions in room time. pp. 61–64
