SIG 2 Perspectives on Neurophysiology and Neurogenic Speech and Language Disorders, April 2003, Vol. 13, 2-3. doi:10.1044/nnsld13.1.2
This issue features five articles that describe the fundamentals of imaging techniques commonly used to investigate various aspects of brain function. The authors describe the physiologic phenomena imaged by these techniques, how the images are obtained, and how these different neuroimaging methods can be employed to study neuropathology and the functional organization and neural bases of cognitive functions, such as language. Each article also includes a discussion of the practical and conceptual limitations of these methods, as well as brief discussions concerning current research and clinical applications. More in-depth coverage of functional imaging research applications is forthcoming in subsequent issues. The June issue of Perspectives will focus on functional imaging in children, and the October and December issues will focus on imaging of speech, language and cognitive f unction in adults with and without communication disorders. The current issue was designed to serve as a neuroimaging primer to ensure familiarity with the basics of these techniques, as a foundation for the upcoming three issues.
