Longitudinal Mapping of Cortical Thickness and Brain Growth in Normal Children
Recent advances in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technology now allow the tracing of developmental changes in the brains of children. We applied computer-matching algorithms and new techniques forExpand

Central control of song in the canary, Serinus canarius
We have traced central nervous pathways controlling bird son in the canary using a combination of behavioral and anatomical techniques. Unilateral electrolytic brain lesions were made in adult maleExpand

Deficits in auditory temporal and spectral resolution in language-impaired children
Between 3 and 6 per cent of children who are otherwise unimpaired have extreme difficulties producing and understanding spoken language1. This disorder is typically labelled specific languageExpand

Functional subdivisions of the temporal lobe neocortex
In order to gather evidence on functional subdivisions of the temporal lobe neocortex of the primate, the activity of more than 2600 single neurons was recorded in 10 myelo- and cytoarchitecturallyExpand

Size Matters: Cerebral Volume Influences Sex Differences in Neuroanatomy
Biological and behavioral differences between the sexes range from obvious to subtle or nonexistent. Neuroanatomical differences are particularly controversial, perhaps due to the implication thatExpand

The telencephalon, diencephalon, and mesencephalon of the canary, Serinus canaria, in stereotaxic coordinates
A stereotaxic atlas of the telencephalon, diencephalon and mesencephalon of the canary, Serinus canaria, was prepared for use in anatomical and behavioral experiments. Canaries have a complex vocalExpand

Anatomical correlates of dyslexia: frontal and cerebellar findings.
In this study, we examined the neuroanatomy of dyslexic (14 males, four females) and control (19 males, 13 females) children in grades 4-6 from a family genetics study. The dyslexics had specificExpand

Normal variation in the frequency and location of human auditory cortex landmarks. Heschl's gyrus: where is it?
Interpersonal communication via the auditory modality is fundamental to normal human development. One of the prominent anatomical specializations supporting this communication is the transverse gyrusExpand

Brain morphology in children with specific language impairment.
The planum temporale and pars triangularis have been found to be larger in the left hemisphere than the right in individuals with normal language skills. Brain morphology studies of individuals withExpand
