We also found increased activity in large portions of the frontal and occipital lobes, including bilateral visual areas (BA17, BA18, and BA19) and areas involved in multimodal integration, such as bilateral superior temporal sulcus (STS), middle intraparietal sulcus (IT, BA40), bilateral inferior frontal gyrus (IFG, BA44, BA45, and BA47), and the insula (BA13) (Figure 3, Table 2).
Further, a study using near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) found increased concentrations of oxygenated hemoglobin (oxy-Hb) in regions in the inferior frontal gyrus (BA45), precentral gyrus (BA6, BA44), and superior temporal sulcus (BA22) when participants were handed an object in a way that was easy to receive, compared to when they were handed it in a way that was difficult to receive (Shibata, Suzuki, & Gyoba, 2007).
