found decreased RSA to be associated with decreased rCBF in ventromedial PFC (Brodmann's area 10), anterior to pregenual ACC, and with increased rCBF in the cerebellum [40].
observed in six participants that regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) in the right dorsal ACC (Brodmann's areas 32 and 24) and right posterior insular cortex covaried directly with mean arterial pressure (MAP) during physical and mental challenge [36].
We thank Heba Lakany for her help in running some fMRI sessions and Heather Whalley for assistance with mapping areas of activation to Talairach coordinates and Brodmann's areas. ES and HL are supported by a Research Development Grant from Scottish Higher Education Funding Council (SHEFC), which also provided scanner time and fMRI experimental equipment through the Center for Functional Imaging Studies.
BA: Brodmann's area, NAc: nucleus accumbens, Med OFC: medial orbitofrontal cortex, and ACC: anterior cingulate cortex.
Human cerebral cortex is divided up into 52 regions, called Brodmann's areas, in honor of the German neuroanatomist who described them in the 19th century.
The boundaries between many Brodmann's areas occur in the depths of sulci.
Metabolism in the APOE-4 group was significantly lower in the left lateral temporal cortex (Brodmann's areas 20 and 21).
Meta-analyses of functional neuroimaging studies (particularly fMRI and PET) have indicated that grammatical processing is clearly related to the left inferior frontal gyrus, including Brodmann's areas 44 and 45, corresponding to Broca's area [87, 88].
In normal-hearing (NH) adults, language processing is associated with extensive frontal activation in the left cerebral hemisphere, including the anterior (Brodmann's Areas (BA) 45 and 47) and posterior (BA 44 and 45) parts of the left inferior frontal gyrus (LIFG), the latter often referred to as Broca's area [19, 20].
