Functional neuroimaging studies in normal subjects indicate that a region in the left frontal operculum (FO) is more active when subjects read pronounceable nonwords as compared to most word types. Here, we report convergent evidence on this finding using the lesion method. We tested the prediction that subjects with left FO damage would have impaired reading of pronounceable nonwords, but relatively intact reading of most word types. Eleven target subjects with circumscribed left FO lesions… Expand
