Fig 1 shows the site of stroke in four individuals diagnosed with Wernicke’s Aphasia. Note the one overlapping area for all four stroke patterns is the posterior portion of the superior temporal gyrus. This area is known as the planum temporale. All were right-handed. All other neurological deficits were resolved at the time of the high-resolution MRI imaging.
