The Evolution of Neuroimaging Research and Developmental Language Disorders.
Lane, Angela B.; Foundas, Anne L.; Leonard, Christiana M.
Topics in Language Disorders, v21 n3 p20-41 May 2001
This article reviews current neuroimaging literature, including computer tomography, positron emission tomography, single photon emission spectroscopy, and magnetic resonance imaging, on individuals with developmental language disorders. The review suggests a complicated relationship between cortical morphometry and language development that is modified by neurobiological factors, including handedness, sex, and IQ.
