Neural basis for sentence comprehension deficits in frontotemporal dementia

Ayanna Cooke, Christian DeVita, James Gee, David Alsop, John Detre, Willis Chen, Murray Grossman
2003 Brain and Language  
We conclude that FTD subgroups have distinct patterns of sentence comprehension difficulty in part because of selective interruptions of a large-scale neural network for sentence processing.  ...  The FTD patient subgroups were compared to a cohort of 11 healthy seniors with intact sentence comprehension.  ...  A neural substrate for some aspects of sentence processing has begun to emerge in neuroimaging activation studies of healthy adults during studies of sentence comprehension.  ...

The Neural Substrate of Naming Events: Effects of Processing Demands but not of Grammatical Class

S. Siri, M. Tettamanti, S. F. Cappa, P. D. Rosa, C. Saccuman, P. Scifo, G. Vigliocco
2007 Cerebral Cortex  
Brain activation studies have provided conflicting evidence concerning the neural substrates of noun and verb processing.  ...  Grammatical class is a fundamental property of language, and all natural languages distinguish between nouns and verbs.  ...  INTRODUCTION The neural substrate of naming events has received substantially less attention than the neural network recruited in naming objects.  ...
