Miyamoto, Richard T.; Wong, Donald
Journal of Communication Disorders, v34 n6 p473-78 Nov-Dec 2001
Positron emission tomography imaging was used to evaluate the brain's response to auditory stimulation, including speech, in deaf adults (five with cochlear implants and one with an auditory brainstem implant). Functional speech processing was associated with activation in areas classically associated with speech processing. (Contains five recommended readings.) (Author/DB)
