- In this study, we used a 3T fMRI to investigate brain activations in processing characters and figures using visual discrimination tasks in which 13 Chinese subjects were shown two Chinese characters (36 pairs) or two figures (36 pairs). The control task (two figures) was used to eliminate the non-linguistic visual and motor confounds. The results show that discrimination of Chinese character is bilateral network for the processing of orthographic, phonological, and semantic attributes. Significant activation patterns were observed in the occipital regions (BA17,18,19,37),the temporal regions (BA22,38), the parietal regions (BA7,39,40), the frontal regions (BA4,6,10,46) and cerebellum. We conclude that constellation of neural substrates is bilateral network for Chinese subjects and used in brain computer interface (BCI).
