Eight right-handed subjects were asked to silently generate a verb to a visual stimulus while the magnetic flux normal to the scalp surface was recorded with a whole-head neuromagnetometer. The spatiotemporal patterns of activation in lateral occipital, inferior parietal, superior temporal, basal temporal, and inferior frontal cortices were estimated using minimum estimation, a distributed source analysis methodology. Although there was significant variability among subjects, averaged data… CONTINUE READING
