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.
