Research output: Contribution to conferencePosterpeer-review


We used a combination of functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) and diffusion Magnetic Resonance Imaging (dMRI) to investigate structural connectivity of voice sensitive areas located along and within the superior temporal sulcus. These temporal voice areas (TVAs) are grouped in three clusters of functional activation in each hemisphere, with an anterior TVA (aTVA), middle TVA (mTVA), and posterior TVA (pTVA). A lateralisation with greater activity in the right hemisphere was observed in previous fMRI studies (Belin et al. 2000). Structural connectivity was investigated for each cluster individually.
