Abstract

Functional magnetic resonance imaging has been a useful tool in the evaluation of language both in normal individuals and in patient populations. It has improved the understanding of language in terms of both anatomic and cognitive models. Although it has confirmed many earlier theories concerning cerebral processing, it has raised unexpected questions, such as how information is encoded into the brain during learning and how it is affected by age and gender. These and other questions remain unanswered, but fMRI holds promise as a useful clinical tool in terms of language localization, cerebral dominance, sensory reception, and motor expression.
