Abstract

Functional magnetic resonance imaging is a valuable tool for the assessment of cerebral hemispheric language dominance, which generally agrees with and will likely soon replace the invasive Wada's test. Technical and data analytic methods still present challenges to the general clinical applicability of fMRI, however. Great care must be exercised in the acquisition and interpretation of fMRl data for this purpose. The choice of behavioral paradigm, measure of brain activation, ROI, and the gender and handedness of the subject can have tremendous influence on experimental lateralization results.
