Activation of association auditory cortex demonstrated with functional MRI.
Publication types: Journal ArticlePublication Status: ppublish
Activations in the temporal lobes previously observed using positron emission tomography and auditory stimuli were partially reproduced with functional MRI and echo-planar imaging at 1.5 T in six volunteers performing tone and phoneme monitoring tasks. Verbal processing compared to a tone recognition task significantly activated a cortical area located in the left anterior temporal region (P < 0.02).
