  which of the following cortical areas controls understanding of written and spoken language

a - brocas area
b - wernickes area

can anyone help me label nbme1-4-36

i got varied answers in forum

A = Broca's area (Brodmann's area 44, 45)
B = Premotor cortex (Brodmann's area 6) ?
C = Motor cortex (Brodmann's area 4)
D = Primary somatosensory cortex (Brodmann's area 3, 1, 2)
E = angular gyrus (Brodmann's area 39)
F = Primary visual cortex (Brodmann's area 17)
G = Wernicke's speech area (Brodmann's area 22)

and

A – broca’s area
B – frontal eye field
C – motor area
d – somatosensory area
e – wernicke’s area
f – primary visual cortex


which is correct..

  cortical areas controls understanding of written and spoken language
wernicke area

cortical areas controls PRODUCTION of spoken language
BROCA area
BOTH ARE IN LEFT HEMISPHERES




Broca's BROKEN SPEECH

Individuals with Broca's aphasia are able to understand the speech of others to varying degrees. Because of this, they are often aware of their difficulties and can become easily frustrated by their speaking problems. It is associated with right hemiparesis, meaning that there can be paralysis of the patient's right face and arm.

nd Wernicke's aphasia

Individuals with Wernicke's aphasia usually have great difficulty understanding the speech of both themselves and others and are therefore often unaware of their mistakes.
