Rehabilitation with HA leaded to increased activity of the left transverse temporal gyrus (BA40, BA41), Wernicke's area (left BA22), the left insula (BA13), and left superior frontal gyrus (BA8) (Figure 4, Table 3).
The lateral surface of the temporal lobe is divided into four regions which help define its borders: the superior temporal gyrus, the middle temporal gyrus, the inferior temporal gyrus and the transverse temporal gyrus. Primary sensory and association areas are part of the lateral temporal lobe.
As shown in Table 2 and Figure 2, when performing finger movements compared with the healthy control group, it showed increased activation in the contralateral PCC (posterior cingulate cortex), MI (primary motor cortex), SI (primary somatosensory cortex), middle temporal gyrus and ipsilateral CMA (cingulate motor area), precuneus, and transverse temporal gyrus. There was decreased signal in the contralateral parahippocampal gyrus (Table 2, Figure 2).
