SummarySingle 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… 
Neuronal activity in the human lateral temporal lobe
TLDR
Neuronal activity in the lateral temporal lobe of man to overt speech during open brain surgery for epilepsy were recorded, and neurons were mostly differently affected by listening to words and language as compared to overt speaking.
Human Temporal Cortical Single Neuron Activity during Language: A Review
TLDR
Human single neuron recordings provide a unique perspective on the biologic substrate for language, for these findings are in contrast to many of the findings from other techniques for investigating this.
Speech-specific tuning of neurons in human superior temporal gyrus.
TLDR
Neurons in human superior temporal gyrus use sparse spatially organized population encoding of complex acoustic-phonetic features to help recognize auditory and visual words.
Neuronal activity in the human lateral temporal lobe
TLDR
The effects of music on discharge rates did not show obvious topographical differences between superior, middle and inferior temporal gyrus, and were bilateral with no significant right-left differences.
ECoG gamma activity during a language task: differentiating expressive and receptive speech areas.
TLDR
The data support the concept of distributed functionally specific language modules interacting to serve receptive and expressive speech, with frontal lobe 'corollary discharges' suppressing low-level receptive cortical language areas in the temporal lobe during speaking.
Comparison of time-frequency responses and the event-related potential to auditory speech stimuli in human cortex.
TLDR
The electrocorticogram was recorded directly from the exposed cortical surface of awake neurosurgical patients during the presentation of auditory syllable stimuli as part of a language-mapping procedure for subsequent left-hemisphere tumor resection.
Functional connection between posterior superior temporal gyrus and ventrolateral prefrontal cortex in human.
TLDR
A functional tract-tracing method was used in 12 neurosurgical patients with multicontact electrode arrays chronically implanted over the left or right perisylvian temporal auditory cortex and the ventrolateral prefrontal cortex for diagnosis and treatment of medically intractable epilepsy to provide evidence for a rapidly conducting pathway between area PLST and VLPFC.
Neural ensemble dynamics in dorsal motor cortex during speech in people with paralysis
TLDR
Neurons in the ‘hand knob’ area of motor cortex in people with tetraplegia modulated during speaking and during nonspeaking movement of the tongue, lips, and jaw, suggesting common neural dynamical motifs may underlie movement of arm and speech articulators.

Abstract A model for the organization of language in the adult humans brain is derived from electrical stimulation mapping of several language-related functions: naming, reading, short-term verbal
Thalamocortical transformation of responses to complex auditory stimuli
TLDR
It is suggested that, at higher levels of the auditory system, essential information about the temporal features of complex sounds may be represented by neural responses to transients in various spectral regions.
