Compared with the normal elderlies, ReHo values decreased in aMCI patients in the left temporal lobe (middle temporal gyrus and inferior temporal gyrus), left parahippocampal gyrus, occipital lobe, lingual gyrus, precuneus, and other regions (P<0.05; Figure 3, Table 1), while ReHo values increased in the right side frontal lobe (inferior frontal gyrus), left superior temporal gyrus, precentral gyrus (frontal lobe), right thalamus, the left fusiform gyrus, and other regions (P<0.05; Figure 4, Table 2).
Participants' brain activation while correctly remembering names was significantly greater in four brain cortical regions (including the middle frontal gyrus, inferior temporal gryus, middle temporal gyrus, and fusiform gyrus) after exercise compared to after rest.
Those with impaired hearing also had significantly more shrinkage in particular regions, including the superior, middle and inferior temporal gyri, brain structures responsible for processing sound and speech.
Results: Under both the real-face and face-pareidolia conditions, activation was observed in the Prefrontal Cortex (PFCX), occipital cortex V1, occipital cortex V2, and inferior temporal regions.
Results: The AUC showed that the best parameters for the control and low-myopic groups were the inferior and inferior temporal RNFL thicknesses (AUC >0.94), respectively; for the moderate- and high-myopic groups, the best parameter was the temporal low RNFL thickness (AUC, 0.926 and 0.896, respectively).
(32) Face patches form strong, specific connections to one another, indicating that functional specialization in the inferior temporal lobe exists not only at the level of isolated neuronal columns (33, 34) or patches, (25, 35) but also extends to the level of distributed networks.
They found activation in the left superior temporal gyrus before the intervention; after the intervention activity was seen in the upper, middle and inferior temporal gyrus, plus activations were found in the fronto-medial turn and right turn supramarginal.
It was found that the slopes were positively correlated with the right temporal gyrus (r=0.46), right middle temporal gyrus (r=0.60), left middle temporal gyrus (r=0.75), left inferior temporal gyrus (r=0.43) and left fusiform gyrus (r=0.48), and the correlation was statistically significant (with Alphasim correction) (see Table 5 and Figure 4).
The patient was seated in front of the OCT device, asked to look straight ahead after blinking and the inferior temporal region was scanned in the vertical plane in 2 seconds.
The investigators assessed amyloid as a whole-brain aggregate and tau in the bilateral inferior temporal neocortex.
Entropy scores closely matched IQ scores from the Shipley-Hartford test for the left side of the middle brain (the left inferior temporal lobe), which is tied to learning speech.
[sup.11]C-pPIB also revealed significant intergroup differences, with regions of hypoperfusion in the STG, inferior temporal gyrus, SPL, and PCC, which is consistent with previous studies using [sup.99m]Technetium-single photon emission computed tomography showing specific patterns of hypoperfusion in parietal-temporal cortical areas [41, 42].
