We investigated the early orthographic processing in the occipital cortex using Japanese morphogram by functional magnetic resonance imaging. Kanji (Japanese morphogram) is one system of character used in the Japanese language, each character of which has a specific meaning and pronunciations. To ensure that the effects of the general visual properties of Kanji were excluded from Kanji-related activation, we created strict control stimuli, the "scrambled Kanji" that had the same luminance… CONTINUE READING
