Abstract

A recent study in chronic stroke patients found that left Brodmann area 47 was among the most commonly lesioned area (more commonly than Brodmann area 44/45) in patients with chronic deficits in reading, naming, and repetition. We hypothesized that the same would not be true in acute stroke; that left BA 44 and 45 would be more commonly associated with these acute lexical deficits. We confirmed this hypothesis and speculate that left BA 47 is an area is critical for recovery of lexical production, perhaps because it can assume lexical production when BA 44/45 are damaged when it is spared.
