  4. Inhibitory outputs to cerebellar nuclei are projected by
    purkinje cells
  5. Outputs from the cerebellum to the cerebral cortex project via

  7. The inability to use major landmarks to navigate, associated with
    damming to lingual gyrus, is termed
    landmark agnosia
  8. Heading disorientation, the inability to represent direction of
    orientation in respect to one’s own environment, is associated with damage to
    posterior cingulate gyrus

    production and comprehension
  16. The procedure in which sodium amobarbital is injected into one carotid artery is often referred to as
    Wada procedure
  17. o
    Evidence from TMS suggests that speech
    perception, in addition to involving regions for auditory perception, also involves brain regions typically associated with_____
    speech production
  18. Like the visual system, one model of language emphasizes the processing of speech through
    dorsal and ventral streams
  19. Articulation and articulatory planning likely involves the following brain regions:
