(https://www.sciencenews.org/article/imaging-scans-show-where-symbols-turn-letters-brain) Three British researchers have now mapped the journey language takes starting with the eyes and ending up at an area of the brain called the ventral occipitotemporal cortex, known to process visual information.
Conclusions: The present findings suggest that, as in real-face perception, face-pareidolia requires interaction between top-down and bottom-up brain regions including the FFA and frontal and occipitotemporal areas.
We have presented a patient with a relatively rare syndrome of alexia without agraphia, which occurs as a consequence of vascular lesion in the left medial occipitotemporal gyrus and splenium of corpus callosum (Figures 1, 2 and 3) with abnormalities in the visual field (right sided homonymous hemianopsia), visual agnosia and anomia for colors, objects and numbers [2, 7], with all modalities of writing preserved.
There was one case each having frontoparietotemporal, occipitotemporal, basal ganglia, and temporoparietal involvement.
Earlier studies suggested that abacus group showed higher average fractional anisotropy (FA) in whole-brain fiber tracts, and the regions with increased FA were found in corpus callosum, left occipitotemporal junction, and right premotor projection, suggesting enhanced integrity in white matter tracts related to motor and visuospatial processes and a visuospatial representation for digit memory.
Alexia without agraphia is a syndrome involving impaired communication between the inferior portion of the splenium of the corpus callosum and the medial occipitotemporal gyrus of the dominant hemisphere [5].
These disturbances are due to disordered visual processing because of disrupted corticocortical projections as a result of alterations in cortical and visual pathways (i.e., occipito-parietal and occipitotemporal) [151, 152].
During the pleasant condition, the late positive potential (LPP - a reliable electrophysiological measure of emotional perception) was correlated with BOLD in the occipitotemporal junction, medial prefrontal cortex, amygdala, and precuneus.
Colored region-of-interest boxes on the scanned image correspond to areas shown in (B through D) (hippocampal sector CA 1 =blue, and occipitotemporal (OT) cortex of fusiform gyrus = red).
