- Cortical circuits for silent speechreading in deaf and hearing peopleCheryl M Capek
Deafness, Cognition and Language Research Centre, Division of Psychology and Language Sciences, University College London, 49 Gordon Square, London WC1H 0PD, United Kingdom
Neuropsychologia 46:1233-41. 2008..Together, these findings indicate that activation in the left superior temporal regions for silent speechreading can be modulated by both hearing status and speechreading skill...
- Hand and mouth: cortical correlates of lexical processing in British Sign Language and speechreading EnglishCheryl M Capek
Deafness Cognition and Language Research Centre DCAL, University College London, London, UK
J Cogn Neurosci 20:1220-34. 2008..Distinct regions within the temporal cortex are not only differentially sensitive to perception of the distinctive articulators for speech and for sign but also show sensitivity to the different articulators within the (signed) language...
- The signer and the sign: cortical correlates of person identity and language processing from point-light displaysRuth Campbell
ESRC Deafness, Cognition and Language Research Centre DCAL, Division of Psychology and Language Sciences, University College London, London, UK
Neuropsychologia 49:3018-26. 2011..Inferior temporal regions associated with the visual recognition of a person appear to be required during SL processing, for both carrier and content information...
- Fingerspelling, signed language, text and picture processing in deaf native signers: the role of the mid-fusiform gyrusDafydd Waters
Behavioural and Brain Sciences Unit, Institute of Child Health, University College London, 30 Guilford Street, London WC1N 1EH, UK
Neuroimage 35:1287-302. 2007..These results are discussed in light of recent proposals that the mid-fusiform gyrus may act as an integration region, mediating between visual input and higher-order stimulus properties...
- Dissociating cognitive and sensory neural plasticity in human superior temporal cortexVelia Cardin
Cognitive, Perceptual and Brain Sciences Department, Deafness, Cognition and Language Research Centre, 49 Gordon Square, University College London, London WC1H 0PD, UK
Nat Commun 4:1473. 2013..This suggests that after plastic reorganization, cortical regions adapt to process a different type of input signal, but preserve the nature of the computation they perform, both at a sensory and cognitive level...
- The signing brain: the neurobiology of sign languageMairead MacSweeney
Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience, University College London, 17 Queen Square, London, WC1N 3AR, UK
Trends Cogn Sci 12:432-40. 2008..Recent studies have also highlighted processing differences between languages in these different modalities. These studies provide rich insights into language and communication processes in deaf and hearing people...

Department of Psychology, Brain Development Lab, 1227 University of Oregon, Eugene, OR 97403 1227, USA
Brain Res Cogn Brain Res 20:111-9. 2004..These results are discussed in the context of previous neuroimaging results using American Sign Language (ASL)...
