Right hemisphere recruitment during language processing in frontotemporal lobar degeneration and Alzheimer's disease.

Abstract:

Right hemisphere recruitment of areas homotopical to affected left-sided language areas has classically been described in aphasia following stroke or brain tumors. It may also be a clinically significant mechanism in frontotemporal lobar degeneration (FTLD) and Alzheimer's disease (AD).
