Abstract

How the brain processes writing in Chinese is largely unknown. Using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMFU) with kinematic recording, this study examined the brain activation and functional connectivity associated with writing to dictation of Chinese characters, contrasted with drawing circles, in 33 healthy adults. It was found that writing Chinese characters recruited activation in the bilateral precentral gyrus, superior/medial frontal gyrus, fusiform gyms, cerebellum and the left precuneus that were associated with the central and peripheral processes of writing. Functional connectivity related to Chinese writing was observed between the left precuneus and both the left pre/postcentral gyrus and the bilateral cerebellum that likely supports motor processing, whereas functional connectivity observed between the right fusiform gyrus and both the bilateral inferior/middle occipital gyms and the right middle frontal gyrus likely supports orthographic processing. Moreover, the functional connectivity between the left inferior frontal gyms and left superior frontal gyrus reflected the interaction between linguistic and motor processes, supporting the interactive hypothesis concerning the relationship between central and peripheral processes of writing. These findings illustrate the neural mechanisms of Chinese writing, extending our knowledge of the cognitive processing required for this form of human communication.
