Their results suggested that females exhibited a more restricted area of dominant left cortex than males in all speech zones tested except the motor strip. Obviously, this needs to be replicated with larger samples equated across sex for size of the cortical unit being stimulated. In addition to naming, it would be important to map verbal skills such as fluency and receptive speech functions. Finally, if the opportunity arises, the entire left lateral cortex should be sampled in order to make generalizations about left hemisphere speech representation beyond the perisylvian region.
