Wernicke's area is one of the most important language regions and has been widely studied in both basic research and clinical neurology. However, its exact anatomy has been controversial. In this study, we proposed to address the anatomy of Wernicke's area by investigating different connectivity profiles. First, the posterior superior temporal gyrus (STG), traditionally called "Wernicke's area", was parcellated into three component subregions with diffusion MRI. Then, whole-brain anatomical… CONTINUE READING
