In the first half of life, the temporal pole
(disinvolvement) dominates regeneration behavior (recreation) in response to a need for relief from the influence and demands of others (spouses, children, bosses, etc.) The strain of dependence and subordination of self (I-values) in the first half of life generates strong desires to escape.

In addition, seed-based analysis highlighted a reduction of connectivity between the occipital lobe and two clusters mapping on the bilateral temporal pole
, in particular with the hippocampus.

In the left hemisphere, all of the regions found to be significantly hypoperfused are supplied by the MCA: the anterior and posterior superior and middle temporal gyri, temporal pole
, angular gyrus, planum temporale, and parietal opercular cortex, whereas one left hemisphere region found to be hyperperfused is supplied by the ACA: the superior frontal gyrus.
In ESs, the between-groups comparison for object working memory versus baseline revealed left sided activations in the middle frontal gyrus (BA8 28 2 48), inferior parietal lobule (BA40 -44 -30 -52), temporal pole
(BA38 -40 16 -5), and right-sided activations in superior frontal gyrus (BA8 -42 14 44) and premotor cortex (BA6 14 4 60).
This portion of the ILF complex runs lateral and inferior to the sagittal stratum of Sachs (SSS) until the infero-lateral part of the temporal pole
, partially overlapping at this level with arcuate fasciculus terminations [29-31] (Figure 1(c)).
Surprisingly, comparison between early adolescence and young adults showed an extensive GMV loss throughout the whole brain, and only three areas showed no significance, which were left amygdale, right amygdale, and left middle temporal pole
(Figure 2, P > 0.05).
Among the few fMRI studies which have focused on PS, Maguire and colleagues [47, 48] showed a greater activation of the medial prefrontal cortex, retrosplenial cortex, temporal pole
, and temporoparietal junction when contrasting personal with general knowledge.
In the within-group contrasts, both the aphasia group and control group activated the right superior temporal sulcus (STS), STG, temporal pole
, and central sulcus.
