The left temporal pole is important for retrieving words for unique concrete entities

Daniel Tranel
2009 Aphasiology  
In lesion-deficit studies, we found that damage to the left temporal polar (TP) region leads to reliable and specific impairments in naming famous persons (e.g., "George Clooney") and famous landmarks  ...  In functional imaging studies, we found that when participants name famous persons and landmarks, they produce specific activation (increases in regional cerebral blood flow) in the left TP region.  ...  The search volume for the PET activations comprised the left and right temporal poles (the latter because we expected the recognition part of the process to activate the right TP region, as before).  ...

2017 bioRxiv   pre-print
In sharp contrast to our prediction, we observed significant functional connectivity between the disconnected temporal pole and remote brain regions in each disconnection case.  ...  Functional connectivity, as measured by resting-state fMRI, has proven a powerful method for studying brain systems in the context of behavior, development, and disease states.  ...  Funding Sources We would like to acknowledge our funding sources: Author Contributions All authors designed the research; DEW, MJS, JB, TJA, & AJ performed the research and conducted the analyses; all  ...

The Neural Substrate of Picture Naming

Susan Murtha, Howard Chertkow, Mario Beauregard, Alan Evans
