Several previous functional imaging experiments have demonstrated that auditory presentation of speech, relative to tones or scrambled speech, activate the superior temporal sulci (STS) bilaterally. In this study, we attempted to segregate the neural responses to phonological, lexical, and semantic input by contrasting activation elicited by heard words, meaningless syllables, and environmental sounds. Inevitable differences between the duration and amplitude of each stimulus type were… 
The effects of attention on speech perception: An fMRI study
Phonological processing in speech perception: What do sonority differences tell us?
Neural substrates of phonemic perception.
TLDR
It is shown that an area extending along the left middle and anterior superior temporal sulcus (STS) is more responsive to familiar consonant-vowel syllables during an auditory discrimination task than to comparably complex auditory patterns that cannot be associated with learned phonemic categories.
Contributions of sensory input, auditory search and verbal comprehension to cortical activity during speech processing.
TLDR
A neuroanatomical framework for the functional components at work during natural speech processing is delineated, i.e. when comprehension results from concurrent acoustic processing and effortful auditory search.
A Cross-Linguistic fMRI Study of Spectral and Temporal Cues Underlying Phonological Processing
TLDR
It appears that lower level specialization for acoustic cues in the spectral and temporal domains cannot be generalized to abstract higher order levels of phonological processing, indicating that hemispheric specialization is sensitive to language-specific factors.
Functional Overlap between Regions Involved in Speech Perception and in Monitoring One's Own Voice during Speech Production
TLDR
The neural organization supporting links between speech production and speech perception is examined by using fMRI to identify regions in which activity during speech production is modulated according to whether auditory feedback matches the predicted outcome or not and by examining the overlap with the network recruited during passive listening to speech sounds.

Human temporal lobe activation by speech and nonspeech sounds.
TLDR
Recording of blood oxygenation signals from the temporal lobes of normal volunteers using functional magnetic resonance imaging indicates functional subdivision of the human lateral temporal cortex and provides a preliminary framework for understanding the cortical processing of speech sounds.

TLDR
It appears that lower level specialization for acoustic cues in the spectral and temporal domains cannot be generalized to abstract higher order levels of phonological processing, indicating that hemispheric specialization is sensitive to language-specific factors.
Differential fMRI Responses in the Left Posterior Superior Temporal Gyrus and Left Supramarginal Gyrus to Habituation and Change Detection in Syllables and Tones
TLDR
The analysis of the decreases and increases in the BOLD signal across the STD, DEV, and rest conditions suggests that the left posterior superior temporal gyrus is implicated in the preattentive change detection of acoustic changes in speech as well as nonspeech stimuli, whereas the left supramarginal g Cyrus is more specifically engaged in the detection of changes in phonological units.
Functional neuroimaging of speech perception in six normal and two aphasic subjects.
TLDR
It is suggested that the dorsolateral temporal cortex of both hemispheres can be involved in prelexical processing of speech.
Hearing and saying. The functional neuro-anatomy of auditory word processing.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that Broca's area is involved in both auditory word perception and repetition but activation is dependent on task (Greater during repetition than hearing) and stimulus presentation (greater when hearing words at a slow rate).
The anatomy of phonological and semantic processing in normal subjects.
TLDR
Brain activation was assessed in the temporal, parietal and frontal multi-modal association areas that constitute parts of a large network that represent the specific anatomic substrate of the lexico-semantic processing of language.
The cortical localization of the lexicons. Positron emission tomography evidence.
TLDR
Positron emission tomography was used to investigate changes in regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) in neurologically normal subjects during word reading and word repetition, and it is argued that they are consistent with localization of a lexicon for spoken word recognition in the middle part of the left superior and middle temporal gyri, and a Lexicon for written word Recognition in the posterior part ofThe left middle temporal gyrus.
Separate neural subsystems within 'Wernicke's area'.
TLDR
The results are compatible with an hypothesis that the posterior superior temporal cortex is specialized for processes involved in the mimicry of sounds, including repetition, the specific role of the posterior left superior temporal sulcus being to transiently represent phonetic sequences, whether heard or internally generated and rehearsed.
Functional Anatomy of Intra- and Cross-Modal Lexical Tasks
TLDR
The findings suggest that the fusiform gyrus processes orthographic word forms, the superior temporal gyrus Processes phonologic word Forms, and posterior heteromodal regions are involved in the conversion between orthography and phonology.
