Symmetry in human brain language correlate to verbal recall
OCTOBER 09, 2007
Dr Marco Catani from the Centre for Neuroimaging Sciences and colleagues from the Institute of Psychiatry, have had a paper looking at the anatomical organization of language pathways in humans. These results are published on line in the journal PNAS (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America) this month. The researchers believe they may give interesting insight into the evolution of language development, gender differences in verbal abilities and plasticity in language disorders including autism, stroke and dementia.
Preliminary analysis suggests women are more likely to have a symmetrical pattern of connections.
