What is it about?

In this study, we tested the right hemisphere hypothesis of developmental language disorder using rigorous, sensitive multimodal imaging methods never before used.

Why is it important?

This study is important for demonstrating, as never before possible, a stark example of right hemisphere functional brain organization for lexical semantic processing in an individual with a history of developmental language impairment.


In the very first individual we tested using anatomically constrained magnetoencephalography, we found strong evidence for atypical right hemisphere organization for object representations even during tasks that did not overtly require language comprehension or production.
