Caption: Listening to and memorizing words. Coloured Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scan showing horizontal sections through a human brain during auditory stimulation. Successively deeper sections are seen from left to right. The top row "control" shows the brain not stimulated. The bottom row shows arrowed regions associated with verbal stimulation. At bottom left and centre, arrows highlight the auditory regions of the cerebrum that become active when words are listened to. At bottom right, arrows point to regions inside the temporal lobe that become active after words are heard and are associated with aspects of memory.
