OBJECTIVE The goal of this study was to create a probe of hemispheric dominance for language using functional magnetic resonance imaging. BACKGROUND Surgical candidates for anterior temporal lobectomy often undergo the Wada test to determine language laterality. The Wada test is invasive and cannot localize intrahemispheric language areas when surgical… CONTINUE READING
