2007 NeuroImage  
Using fMRI, we compared cortical networks supporting the perception of fingerspelled, signed, written, and pictorial stimuli in deaf native signers of British Sign Language (BSL).  ...  Greater activation in left and right inferior temporal and mid-fusiform gyri was found for pictures than text in both deaf and hearing groups.  ...  Woll are supported, in part, by the Economic and Social Research Council of Great Britain (grant: RES-620-28-6001), Deafness, Cognition and Language Research Centre (DCAL).  ...

2013 Neuropsychologia  
In the present study, we investigated for the first time semantic, phonological and orthographic processing in working memory for sign-and speech-based language.  ...  During fMRI we administered a picture-based 2-back working memory task with Semantic, Phonological, Orthographic and Baseline conditions to 11 deaf signers and 20 hearing non-signers.  ...  Acknowledgements Thanks to Lena Davidsson and Dr. Johan Olsrud for help with data collection and to all participants who gave generously of their time.  ...
