Broca's area encompasses opercular and triangular part of the inferior frontal gyrus, covered by Brodmann's areas 44 and 45, respectively. Recent neuroimaging studies have revealed that, in addition to classical language functions, Broca's area has novel and unexpected functions, serving as a likely interface of action and perception important for both(More)
Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) represent complex neurodevelopmental disorders characterized by impairments in reciprocal social interactions, abnormal development and use of language, and monotonously repetitive behaviors. With an estimated heritability of more than 90%, it is the most strongly genetically influenced psychiatric disorder of the young age.(More)
PURPOSE In most cases, caregiver questionnaires are completed by mothers and seldom by fathers. Although parents tend to have moderate to high congruence, some studies suggest that differences between the mothers' and the fathers' answers can complicate diagnostic decision-making. The aim of this study was to determine mother-father response differences on(More)

In the classical, aphasiological (Wernicke-Lichtheim) model for neural basis of language, speech production was assigned to the "motor speech area" located in opercular and triangular part of the left inferior frontal gyrus (fronto-opercular cortex, Broca's area) and conceptualized as a classical "modular centre" within a simple, language-specific neural(More)
