This preliminary study follows the maturation of motor speech areas and their adjacent orofacial motor zones in the right and left hemispheres of the human infant from 3 months to 72 months of age. Quantitative studies of basilar dendrite patterns of layer 5 cortical pyramids are reported in 17 age-graded subjects. The sequence of developmental changes is characterized by early (3 month) prominence of orofacial motor zones over motor speech areas and of the right hemisphere over the left as… CONTINUE READING
