Obligatory role of the LIFG in synonym generation: evidence from PET and cortical stimulation.

Abstract

We report results from a patient in whom we obtained converging evidence from positron emission tomography (PET) and intraoperative stimulation mapping to support a one-way dissociation between the functional areas involved in word repetition and synonym generation. Intraoperative stimulation mapping interfered with synonym generation but did not disturb… (More)
