A paired t -test showed that when compared with the baseline, the patients with PD who were analyzed during the 2 years follow-up presented with increased fALFF values in the right middle temporal gyrus (MTG) and right middle occipital gyrus (MOG) and with decreased fALFF values in the right cerebellum posterior lobe (CPL), right thalamus, left superior parietal lobule, left IPL, left precentral gyrus, and left postcentral gyrus ( P < 0.
Generally, verbal fluency paradigms require expressive language and secondarily, language comprehension and therefore activations are noted in Broca's areas and Wernicke's area in the dominant hemisphere, in addition to pre-motor cortex, posterior fusiform gyrus, middle temporal gyrus and dorsolateral prefrontal cortex.
They discovered a strong connection between the number of Facebook friends and the amount of "gray matter" in the amygdala, the right superior temporal sulcus, the left middle temporal gyrus and the right entorhinal cortex.
