Individuals with semantic dementia (SD) typically suffer from selective semantic deficits due to degenerative brain atrophy. Although some brain regions have been found to be correlated with the semantic impairments of SD patients, it is unclear if the damage is actually responsible for SD patients' semantic disorders because these findings were primarily obtained by examining the roles of local individual regions themselves without considering the influence of other regions that are… CONTINUE READING
