Consistent with previous studies, these regions included the bilateral temporal pole: the middle temporal gyrus; the left superior frontal gyrus, orbital part; the right lateral dorsolateral frontal gyrus; the left thalamus; the right putamen; the left lingual gyrus; the right cuneus; and the left posterior cingulate gyrus.
The diagnosis of CADASIL should be taken into account in patients with lacunar infarcts, leukoencephalopathy and migraine with an atypical aura even in the absence of white matter lesions in the anterior temporal poles [39].
reported that LI4 and Liv3 acupuncture both activated bilateral middle temporal gyrus but that stimulation at LI4 could specifically elicit responses in the temporal pole [13].
Using slices from all three orientations (coronal, sagittal, and transaxial), 14 left and right regions of interest (ROIs) were visually inspected and rated by a clinician trained in neuroanatomy using the Mai Atlas of the Human Brain (Mai, Assheuer & Paxinos 1997); these included prefrontal poles, inferior orbits, lateral PFC, temporal poles, lateral temporal lobes, medial temporal lobes, parietal lobes, occipital lobes, cerebellum, anterior cingulate gyrus, anterior insular cortex, caudate, putamen, and thalamus.
On the phones used in the study the antennas are near the bottom, so the brain areas involved were the orbitofrontal region, which sits right behind the eyes, and the temporal pole below it.
Metabolism in the orbitofrontal cortex and temporal pole were significantly higher for on than off conditions.
Metabolism in the brain region closest to the antenna (orbitofrontal cortex and temporal pole) was significantly higher (approximately seven per cent) for mobile phone on than for mobile phone off conditions.
(2002) found that patients with unilateral epilepsy in the right temporal pole had deficits in face recognition, semantic memory and naming, while patients with unilateral epilepsy in the left temporal pole only had deficits in face naming.
The temporal pole (dependency) dominates behavior in the first half of life, reflecting younger people's dependency on others for behavior cues.
