Caption: Motor area brain activation. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans of the brain of a woman with a tumour on the Wernicke area, in the left posterior temporal lobe. Four different views are seen showing transverse sections through different levels of the brain. Front of the brain is at top. Motor areas within the brain are seen to be active (coloured areas) during alternate flexing and extension of the right thumb. Wernike's area is thought to be primarily involved in speech and language generation and understanding. As such, damage to this area can cause problems with language processes, but motor controls are largely unaffected.
