Neuroimaging reveals hidden communication between brain layers during reading

Language involves many different regions of the brain. Researchers have discovered previously hidden connections between brain layers during reading, in a neuroimaging study. The team used laminar Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (lfMRI) to investigate what happens when people read Dutch words like ”zalm” (salmon) compared to pseudowords (”rorf”), revealing top-down influences on deep brain layers for the first time.
