Broca's region is a modality-independet hub in the language network: Insights from a recent meta-analysis

The neurophysiological response during comprehension of sign language has been studied using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and positron emission tomography (PET) since the advent of neuroimaging. Deaf signers have been shown to recruit …

The neural basis of sign language processing in deaf signers: An Activation Likelihood Estimation meta-analysis

The neurophysiological response during processing of sign language (SL) has been studied since the advent of Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI). Nevertheless, the neural substrates of SL remain subject …

Reviewing the functional neuroanatomy of sign language in deaf signers using Activation Likelihood Estimation

The neurophysiological response during comprehension and production of sign language has been studied using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and positron emission tomography (PET) since the advent of neuroimaging. Deaf signers have been …

The language network(s): Beyond localisation?

The cognitive revolution of the 1950s reinvigorated the idea that the brain is the organ enabling the mind. Hence, the human ability to acquire and use language, a fundamentally mental property, must be considered and studied as a property of the …
