Increased activation of the lingual gyri during silent reading was found, in comparison with activation during viewing a fixation cross. Comparison between the reading of words and pseudowords suggested the involvement of the middle temporal gyri in retrieving both the phonological and semantic codes of words. It is suggested that this area might be involved in the sublexical conversion of orthographic input strings into phonological output codes. The middle fusiform gyrus was activated in response to pseudoword reading, a finding that fits previous findings regarding its role in processing letter strings.

According to Temple and her colleagues, these results point to the role of left prefrontal regions in normal mediation of rapid auditory processing and attest to the disruption of these regions in dyslexic readers. In supporting their conclusion, the researchers cite a PET study by Belin et al. (1998) on healthy right-handed men. Using comparable non-verbal stimuli, they found left prefrontal activation in response to rapidly changing stimuli relative to a resting baseline, but no activation in response to slow stimuli relative to rest.
