Direct Exploration of the Role of the Ventral Anterior Temporal Lobe in Semantic Memory: Cortical Stimulation and Local Field Potential Evidence From Subdural Grid Electrodes
Across 6 patients, and utilizing a variety of semantic assessments, it is evaluated and confirmed that the anterior fusiform/inferior temporal gyrus is crucial in multimodal, receptive, and expressive, semantic processing.
Functional Mapping of the Human Auditory Cortex: fMRI Investigation of a Patient with Auditory Agnosia from Trauma to the Inferior Colliculus
Auditory agnosia reflects dysfunction of the auditory ventral stream, and leftward localization bias, preserved audiovisual integration, and phoneme perception are explained by preserved processing in her right auditory dorsal stream.
Neuronal Mechanism of Speech Hearing: An fMRI Study
The reported findings support the importance of the right STG toward the enhancement of the speech hearing performance by showing significantly different levels of neuronal activations across the three hearing conditions.

Functional Connectivity between Face-Movement and Speech-Intelligibility Areas during Auditory-Only Speech Perception
The present findings indicate that learned visual information is integrated into the analysis of auditory-only speech and that this integration results from the interaction of task-relevant face-movement and auditory speech-sensitive areas.
Neuronal basis of speech comprehension
Intraoperative dorsal language network mapping by using single‐pulse electrical stimulation
This study provided the direct evidence that AL, PL, and AF constitute the dorsal language network, and intraoperative CCEP monitoring is clinically useful for evaluating the integrity of the language network.
Edinburgh Research Explorer Direct exploration of the role of the ventral anterior temporal lobe in semantic memory
It is concluded that the anterior fusiform/inferior temporal gyrus is crucial in multimodal, receptive, and expressive, semantic processing.


Defining a left-lateralized response specific to intelligible speech using fMRI.
The results demonstrate that there are neural responses to intelligible speech along the length of the left lateral temporal neocortex, although the precise processing roles of the anterior and posterior regions cannot be determined from this study.
Converging Language Streams in the Human Temporal Lobe
Common activation during implicit comprehension of spoken and written language in inferior and lateral regions of the left anterior temporal cortex and at the junction of temporal, occipital, and parietal cortex is demonstrated.
Neural substrates of phonemic perception.
It is shown that an area extending along the left middle and anterior superior temporal sulcus (STS) is more responsive to familiar consonant-vowel syllables during an auditory discrimination task than to comparably complex auditory patterns that cannot be associated with learned phonemic categories.

Cortical Sites Critical for Speech Discrimination in Normal and Impaired Listeners
Template mixture modeling of speech discrimination deficits during ESM showed larger and more variable cortical distributions for impaired listeners than normal listeners, despite comparable behavioral performances, demonstrating that individual differences in speech recognition abilities are reflected in the underlying cortical representations.
The role of left inferior frontal and superior temporal cortex in sentence comprehension: localizing syntactic and semantic processes.
Comparisons of the two anomalous conditions revealed higher levels of activation for the syntactic over the semantic condition in the left basal ganglia and for the semantic over the syntactically incorrect conditions in the mid-portion of the superior temporal gyrus, bilaterally.
Cognition and anatomy in three variants of primary progressive aphasia
Cognitive, genetic, and anatomical features indicate that different PPA clinical variants may correspond to different underlying pathological processes.

Bias between MNI and Talairach coordinates analyzed using the ICBM‐152 brain template
An MNI‐to‐Talairach (MTT) transform to correct for bias between MNI and Talairach coordinates was formulated using a best‐fit analysis in one hundred high‐resolution 3‐D MR brain images.
