A ventral stream connects temporal and prefrontal regions via the extreme capsule and mediates meaning, e.g. in auditory comprehension. The aim of our study was to test, in a large sample of 100 aphasic stroke patients, how well acute impairments of repetition and comprehension correlate with lesions of either the dorsal or ventral stream. We combined voxelwise lesion-behaviour mapping with the dorsal and ventral white matter fibre tracts determined by probabilistic fibre tracking in our previous study in healthy subjects. We found that repetition impairments were mainly associated with lesions located in the posterior temporoparietal region with a statistical lesion maximum in the periventricular white matter in projection of the dorsal superior longitudinal and arcuate fasciculus. In contrast, lesions associated with comprehension deficits were found more ventral-anterior in the temporoprefrontal region with a statistical lesion maximum between the insular cortex and the putamen in projection of the ventral extreme capsule. Individual lesion overlap with the dorsal fibre tract showed a significant negative correlation with repetition performance, whereas lesion overlap with the ventral fibre tract revealed a significant negative correlation with comprehension performance. To summarize, our results from patients with acute stroke lesions support the claim that language is organized along two segregated dorsal–ventral streams. Particularly, this is the first lesion study demonstrating that task performance on auditory comprehension measures requires an interaction between temporal and prefrontal brain regions via the ventral extreme capsule pathway.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:title>Damage to ventral and dorsal language pathways in acute aphasia</dcterms:title> <dc:contributor>Kümmerer, Dorothee</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Glauche, Volkmar</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Kellmeyer, Philipp</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Suchan, Julia</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Mader, Irina</dc:creator> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="http://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/25801"/> <dcterms:issued>2013-02</dcterms:issued> <dc:contributor>Glauche, Volkmar</dc:contributor> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2014-01-10T12:27:23Z</dc:date> <dc:contributor>Mader, Irina</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Suchan, Julia</dc:contributor> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/43"/> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://rightsstatements.org/page/InC/1.0/"/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/43"/> <dc:creator>Klöppel, Stefan</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Kümmerer, Dorothee</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Hartwigsen, Gesa</dc:contributor> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>Brain : a journal of neurology ; 136 (2013), 2. - S. 619-629</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:contributor>Kellmeyer, Philipp</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Klöppel, Stefan</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Saur, Dorothee</dc:creator> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
