Structural asymmetries in white matter tracts within the language system have been suggested to be one of the factors underlying functional language lateralization. To test this assumption, the present study examined how performance in the dichotic listening task, a behavioral measure of language dominance, is affected by macro- and microstructural properties of the arcuate and uncinate fasciculus. To this end, whole brain tractography was performed on 29 diffusion tensor imaging datasets… CONTINUE READING
