Drawing cartoon faces--a functional imaging study of the cognitive neuroscience of drawing reports a functional magnetic resonance imaging study on drawing cartoon faces investigating mental processes such as face processing, spatial processing, visuo-motor control and spatial memory.

A related study is Eye–hand strategies in copying complex lines. Another fMRI study on drawing is The neural basis for simulated drawing and the semantic implications.
