Broca's area is crucially involved in language processing. The sub-regions of Broca's area (pars triangularis, pars opercularis) presumably are connected via corticocortical pathways. However, growing evidence suggests that the thalamus may also be involved in language and share some of the linguistic functions supported by Broca's area. Functional connectivity is thought to be achieved via corticothalamic/thalamocortical white matter pathways. Our study investigates structural connectivity… Expand

TLDR
Evidence is cited that high gamma activity is the neural signature for processing in the cortICO-thalamo-cortical and cortico- cortical circuitry. Expand
Local and whole-network topologies reveal that pulvinar and semantic hub interactions correlate with picture vocabulary.
TLDR
This study verified a role for a subcortical- cortical network in vocabulary processing that is based on local and whole-network topologies, and applied a novel method to validate the interaction between semantic network hubs and the pulvinar. Expand
Reorganization of the thalamocortical network in musicians
TLDR
It is proposed that the reorganized thalamocortical network in musicians contributes not only to higher sensitivity to sound but also to the integration of mental imagery with sound, which are both presumed to be important for better music performance. Expand
Brain asymmetry in the white matter making and globularity
TLDR
An evo-devo hypothesis is presented according to which the myelination of the Corpus Callosum, Brain Asymmetry, and Globularity are conjectured to make up the angles of a co-evolutionary triangle that gave rise to the authors' language-ready brain. Expand
Not single brain areas but a network is involved in language: Applications in presurgical planning
OBJECTIVES Language is an important human function, and is a determinant of the quality of life. In conditions such as brain lesions, disruption of the language function may occur, and lesionExpand
Temporo-cerebellar connectivity underlies timing constraints in audition
TLDR
The functional mechanisms associated with temporo-cerebellar connectivity are tested, verifying these mechanisms for speech sounds and establishing the basis for a generalizable role of cerebellar forward-modeling in sensation beyond the monitoring of sensory feedback in the motor domain. Expand
Neuroimaging of the component white matter connections and structures within the cerebellar-frontal pathway in posterior fossa tumor survivors
TLDR
Results of this multimodal neuroimaging study provide correlational evidence that the mechanism of injury subsequent to brain tumor treatment may be different depending on type of treatment(s). Expand
Preserved repetition in thalamic afasia. A pathophysiological hypothesis
TLDR
The extensive cortical hypometabolism due to diaschisis may have been responsible for the severity of the aphasia, whereas the less severe reduction of metabolism in the superior and transverse temporal gyri, and also, albeit less evident, in Broca's area, might explain the preservation of repetition. Expand
Hemispheric differences in language processing in autism spectrum disorders: A meta‐analysis of neuroimaging studies
TLDR
The findings show that the hypotheses reviewed here address the neural and cognitive aspects of language difficulties in ASD across all tasks only in a limited way, and suggest the nuances of language and brain in ASD in terms of its context‐dependency. Expand
Verbal fluency and intrinsic brain activity in Alzheimer’s disease
TLDR
Resting state fMRI studies suggest alterations in several resting-state networks in AD, such as the default mode network, fronto-parietal network, executive network, salience network, and language network. Expand

Broca's area and its striatal and thalamic connections: a diffusion-MRI tractography study
TLDR
This work is the first to provide a detailed account of inferred circuitry involving basal ganglia, thalamus, and Broca's area, which would be a prerequisite to substantiate their support of language processing. Expand
Multiple thalamo-cortical disconnections in anterior thalamic infarction: Implications for thalamic mechanisms of memory and language
TLDR
Amnesia that is associated with anterior thalamic infarction is best interpreted in the context of dual/multiple-system theories of memory/amnesia that posit that multiple neural circuits connecting the anterior and mediodorsalThalamic nuclei with the hippocampus and rhinal/parahippocampal cortices work in concert to support memory function.

TLDR
It is concluded that four related corticothalamic and/or thalamocortical mechanisms impact language processing and the relationship and interaction of these mechanisms are discussed and integrated with thalamic aphasia and neuroimaging data into a theory ofThalamic functions in language. Expand
Relationships of precentral premotor and prefrontal cortex to the mediodorsal and intralaminar nuclei of the monkey thalamus.
The projections of precentral, premotor and prefrontal cortical areas to the mediodorsal and intralaminar thalamic nuclei have been reexamined by means of the anterograde labelling technique in 21Expand
The primate mediodorsal (MD) nucleus and its projection to the frontal lobe
TLDR
The widespread cortical targets of MD neurons together with evidence for multiple thalamic inputs to prefrontal areas support a revision of the classical hodological definition of prefrontal cortex as the exclusive cortical recipient of MD projections. Expand
Analysis of neural mechanisms underlying verbal fluency in cytoarchitectonically defined stereotaxic space—The roles of Brodmann areas 44 and 45
TLDR
Although both areas participate in verbal fluency, they do so differentially, and area 44 is probably involved in high-level aspects of programming speech production per se, which opens new perspectives for analyzing the cortical networks involved in language. Expand
Evidence for nonreciprocal organization of the mouse auditory thalamocortical‐corticothalamic projection systems
We tested the hypothesis that information is routed from one area of the auditory cortex (AC) to another via the dorsal division of the medial geniculate body (MGBd) by analyzing the degree ofExpand
Broca's region revisited: Cytoarchitecture and intersubject variability
TLDR
These morphologic asymmetries of area 44 provide a putative correlate of the functional lateralization of speech production and show that macroscopic features are not reliable landmarks of cytoarchitectonic borders. Expand
The corticothalamocortical circuit drives higher-order cortex in the mouse
TLDR
Using a new form of optical imaging in a brain slice preparation, it is found that the corticothalamocortical pathway drove robust activity in higher-order somatosensory cortex, suggesting a physiologically viable candidate for information transfer to higher- order cortical areas. Expand
