Anatomical and functional imaging in dysphasia
Participants : Clément De Guibert, Camille Maumet, Arnaud Biraben, Jean-Christophe Ferré, Pierre Jannin, Christian Barillot.
In the context of a larger study on specific language impairment, we assessed the effects of four language tasks including two reference lexico-semantic tasks and two new tasks designed to avoid reading and metalinguistic requirements on a group of 18 healthy children. To the aim of functional exploration and structural anomaly detection, we integrated SPM-based tools and produced an automated pipeline. On the top of this conventional approach, we performed region of interest analysis focusing on mean activation and laterality indexes. Further work will include between-group comparisons and diffusion data analysis.
