Abstract

Functional magnetic resonance (fMR) is an acknowledged tool for studying cortical areas involved in motorial, sensitive, sensorial as well cognitive functions. This is possible on account of signal changes arising in the cerebral cortex where modification in blood flow and oxygenation take place passing from activated to the resting state (BOLDc). Wada test represent, up to now, the gold standard for measuring language lateralization. Purpose of this study was to evaluate the reliability of fMR as an alternative tool to the Wada test for correctly assess language lateralization.
