Furthermore, two studies [29, 44] found a decrement in connectivity in the middle temporal gyrus. We observed a similar pattern of functional connectivity alterations in this brain region.
[18] According to the results of correlation analyses conducted on patients' facial emotion cognition task data and brain imaging data, it has been found that the brain areas with abnormal grey matter which are positively correlated with the shift slope are the right superior temporal gyrus, middle temporal gyrus, left middle temporal gyrus, inferior temporal gyrus and fusiform gyrus.
The ALFF for the depression group was higher in the left middle temporal gyrus, while the other brain regions were not significantly different from the controls.
More interestingly, in P1, the activation patterns for trained and untrained items posttherapy included common areas, with the activation of the left middle temporal gyrus, right fusiform gyrus, and right inferior frontal gyrus.
These significantly different nodes were mainly concentrated in the bilateral lenticular nucleus: the putamen; bilateral lingual gyrus; bilateral amygdala; bilateral thalamus; bilateral median cingulate and paracingulate gyri; right posterior cingulate gyrus; bilateral cuneus; left anterior cingulate and paracingulate gyri; right superior frontal gyrus, orbital part; right middle frontal gyrus; right temporal pole; middle temporal gyrus; left precentral gyrus; right lenticular nucleus; pallidum; and so forth.
Activations were found in the right ACC, bilateral thalamus, bilateral INS, right MFG, bilateral STG, bilateral middle temporal gyrus (MTG), left PoCG, bilateral caudate (CAU), right uncal gyrus, left PUT, fusiform, right cerebellum anterior lobe, and so forth (Figure 2(b), Table 2).
During this measure of executive function, decreases were seen in the cuneus, middle temporal gyrus, inferior parietal lobule, insula, and medial dorsal nucleus of thalamus.
Also, they detected significant responses to words in other parts of the reading network, including the anterior middle temporal gyrus, the left posterior middle temporal gyrus, the angular and supramarginal gyri, and the left superior temporal gyrus.
Moreover, in the right hemisphere, the nodes disconnected were anterior cingulate cortex, inferior temporal gyrus, superior occipital gyrus, middle temporal gyrus, putamen, amygdala, inferior frontal triangular gyrus, and fusiform gyrus.
Compared to the controls, the dancers showed significantly higher ALFF in the left middle temporal gyrus, bilateral precentral gyrus, bilateral inferior frontal gyrus, left postcentral gyrus, left inferior temporal gyrus, right middle occipital gyrus, right superior temporal gyrus, and left middle frontal gyrus, and less ALFF in left lingual gyrus (Table 2, Figure 1).
Component 11 showed differences in the middle temporal gyrus, lingual gyrus, subgyral regions, cuneus, superior temporal gyrus, precuneus, superior parietal lobule, inferior parietal lobule, and middle occipital gyrus.
