Motor and sensory cortical tongue representations were examined in 40 patients with intractable seizures who underwent chronic subdural electrode grid implantation. Tongue responses were observed in a wide area 4.5 cm anterior and 3 cm posterior to the central sulcus. The distribution of the responses was not influenced by whether the responses were unilateral or bilateral. In patients with fronto-parietal lesions, the tongue motor area was located significantly more superior to the Sylvian… CONTINUE READING
