Neuronal activity in the human lateral temporal lobe

  author={O. Creutzfeldt and George A. Ojemann and Ettore Lettich},
  journal={Experimental Brain Research},
Single and multiple unit neuronal activity was recorded from the cortex of the lateral temporal lobe in conscious humans during open brain surgery for the treatment of epilepsy. Recordings were obtained from the right and left superior, middle and inferior temporal gyrus of 34 patients (41 recording sites). Recordings were restricted to regions to be resected during subsequent surgery. This excluded recordings from language areas proper. Neuronal responses to words and sentences presented over… CONTINUE READING
