BOLD signal in controls and patient 6 performing language paradigm 2. (A) HRF extracted from the peak voxel in the bilateral auditory cortex of six healthy control subjects performing language paradigm 2. Plots represent the mean contrast estimate across subjects (y-axis) within each time bin (y-axis). The dark grey bar indicates the time bin with the highest contrast estimate as an estimation of the TTP latency. (B) HRF extracted from the peak voxel in the bilateral auditory cortex of patient 6 at day 1 (upper row) and day 9 (lower row). Plots represent mean contrast estimate across stimuli (x-axis) within each time bin (y-axis). From day 1 to day 9, TTP latency increased in both hemispheres (from time bin 6 to time bin 7) and amplitude decreased in the lesioned hemisphere.
