CONCLUSIONS Bilateral activation of Brodmann area 39 provides functional support for the concept of bilateral cortical activation with auditory stimulation. The observation that when Brodmann area 39 is activated, area 38 of the temporal lobe is simultaneously inhibited (a functional observation that has seemingly not been previously reported) supports the(More)
CONCLUSIONS Our observations confirm that musical sensations with no external stimuli, either spontaneous or evoked, occur in normal individuals and that a biological substrate can be demonstrated by brain single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT). OBJECTIVES There are individuals, usually musicians, who are seemingly able to evoke and/or have(More)
The volume of biomedical spatial information available on line increases day by day, which need to be exploited and shared by users in different knowledge areas. NCD 1 kill 38 million people each year and considering the seriousness of the problem globally, there are already underway government strategies to reduce risk factors and early detection and(More)
CONCLUSIONS Our observations support the concept of bilateral cortical activation with monaural and binaural auditory stimulation. The observation that most of the significantly activated areas were the same with monaural or binaural stimulation suggests that the differences in auditory perception with binaural stimulation are not due to the involvement of(More)
CONCLUSIONS 1.With auditory stimuli cortical activation of Brodmann's areas 39 and 40 and inhibition of area 38 is bilateral. Inhibitory and excitatory relays play a role in the auditory pathways. 2. A statistically significant increased activation on the left side in areas 39 and 40, regardless of the stimulated ear, is suggestive that pure tones are(More)
CONCLUSIONS Spontaneous musical auditory perceptions commonly occur in patients who develop abrupt bilateral sensorineural hearing loss. The findings in both subjects who were image tested while having these perceptions are suggestive of a biological substrate for this process and of a central locus for auditory memory seemingly located in and around area(More)
