This article discusses the use of functional magnetic resonance (fMR) imaging to localize language. Suggestions are made for ensuring visualization of language areas by selection of effective activation tasks. It is argued that the superior temporal gyrus responses evoked by listening to speech represent auditory, rather than language, processing. fMR imaging studies using word generation and semantic decision tasks are reviewed in detail. These data indicate that fMR imaging is capable of… CONTINUE READING
