An illustration shows functional connectivity between the posterior striatum and speech-selective left superior temporal sulcus tissue. l-STS tissue was identified as exhibiting greater BOLD activation for hearing speech compared with nonspeech sounds (i.e., speech: English words and syllables vs. nonspeech: semantically matched environmental sounds and sound exemplars from the videogame) in a separate localizer task before videogame training. The group-based speech > nonspeech contrast mask is shown in orange, and individually defined speech-selective ROIs are shown as blue spheres.
