It is widely assumed that following extensive damage to the left hemisphere sustained in early childhood, language functions are likely to reorganize and develop in the right hemisphere, especially if the lesion affects the classical Broca's or Wernicke's language areas. In the present study, functional MRI (fMRI) was used to examine language lateralization in 10 children and adolescents with intractable epilepsy who sustained an early lesion in the left hemisphere. Lesions were adjacent to or… CONTINUE READING
