  • Brocha's centre small area within left cerebral hemisphere; an essential component of speech mechanisms; if affected by cerebrovascular accident (CVA) (i.e. CVA affecting the right side of the body), aphasia results

  • ossification centre bone area/areas where calcification of the osteoid matrix begins; primary ossification centre is usually within the shaft of a long bone; a secondary ossification centre occurs in an epiphysis or a tuberosity

  • Wernicke's centre a large area of the left cerebral hemisphere essential to the understanding and formulation of coherent speech; when affected by cerebrovascular accident (manifesting on the right side of the body) communication and speech difficulties result
