The arcuate fasciculus (AF), a white matter tract linking temporal and inferior frontal language cortices, can be disrupted in stroke patients suffering from aphasia. Using diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) tractography it is possible to track AF connections to neural regions associated with either phonological or semantic linguistic processing. The aim of the current study is to investigate the relationship between integrity of white matter microstructure and specific linguistic deficits.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
