Caption: Language area brain activation. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans of the brain of a woman with a tumour (centre right of scans) in the left temporal lobe, and photophobia (sensitivity to light). Six views are seen showing transverse sections through different levels of the brain. Front of the brain is at top. Language areas within the brain are seen to be active (coloured areas) during sentence generation from a list of verbs. The temporal lobe is important for the processing of language meaning (semantics). Damage in this region can create problems with language processes. A key to the level of activation is at lower right, 7 is greatest.
