The Human superior temporal sulcus (STS)is functionally diverse, but its functional organization is not well understood. In a recent meta-analysis of a large number of positron emission tomography (PET) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) Human studies, we found evidence of different functional specificity in the left STS supporting a division of its middle to terminal extent into at least three distinct functional areas.

In the proposed project, a meta-analysis of PET and fMRI Human studies of the STS in the right hemisphere will be conducted in order to assess its functional organization with respect to that in the left hemisphere.

The student role will be to conduct extensive literature and database searches, as well as data sorting according to predefined functional categories, as a basis for the meta-analysis. The work will involve some learning of cognitive function neuroanatomy, and the use of dedicated meta-analysis software programs. Excellent ability to communicate in English is required.
