    J Cogn Neurosci 18:665-79. 2006
    ..The anterior temporal lobe, on the other hand, was relatively insensitive to manipulations of semantic structure, suggesting that syntactic information plays a greater role in driving activation in this area...

    Neuroimage 36:924-32. 2007
    ..The data indicate a complex spatiotemporal pattern of activity associated with computation of word and sentence-level semantic information, and suggest a particular role for the left angular gyrus in processing overall sentence meaning...

    Colin Humphries
    Department of Neurology, Medical College of Wisconsin, Functional Imaging Research Center, Milwaukee, WI 53226, USA
    Neuroimage 50:1202-11. 2010
    ..A third, smaller gradient was observed in the lateral posterior aspect of the superior temporal gyrus. The results suggest close homologies between the tonotopic organization of human and nonhuman primate auditory cortex...

  1. FMRI Investigations of Anterior Temporal Lobe Function
    Colin Humphries; Fiscal Year: 2006
    ..Finally, the third experiment will investigate the influence of prosody on ATSA activation. We predict that disrupting sentence prosody will affect activation levels in the ATSA. ..
