In visual language processing, if left posterior temporal cortex
Petersen et al. reported in 1988(Positron emission tomographic
studies of the cortical anatomy of single-word processing, Nature
331:p585-589) localization of visual and auditory word processing and
word generation, and concluded that left posterior temporal cortex
(angular gyrus or Wernicke's area) was not engaged in processing
visually taken word. But I don't know any pros or cons about this
result after that.
Does anyone know about that ?
Any help would be appreciated.
