We determined the neural correlates of word generation and tool use pantomiming in healthy subjects with typical (n=10) or atypical (n=10) language dominance to investigate similarities in response pattern and hemispheric specialization between language and praxis. All typical language dominant volunteers also revealed left hemisphere changes during tool use pantomiming in prefrontal, premotor, and posterior parietal regions. All atypical language dominant participants displayed right… CONTINUE READING
