dc.description.abstractSince right hemisphere sensorimitor network (planum temporale, arcuate fasciculus and ventral premotor cortex) was described for the first time as one of the brain bases of music processing, evidence of structural (auditory cortex and arcuate fasciculus) and functional (resting-state) differences in musicians have being reported in the last years. Given the parallelism of this right sensorimotor network with the left sensorimotor network (responsible for language processing in the vast majority of the population), we wonder if musical training can not only provoke a greater development of this brain circuit, but also a greater participation in language processing tasks. To test this hypothesis, we asssessed hemispheric lateralization of language using fMRI during a verb generation task in four different groups of participants: right-handed nonmusicians (n = 20), righ-handed musicians (n = 18), left-handed nonmusicians (n = 20) and left-handed musicians (n = 34). Our results show that left-handed musicians are four times more likely to show atypical (predominantly right) hemispheric lateralizations of language than left-handed nonmusicians, and six times more likely than right-handed musicians. We could not find an effect of musical training in language lateralization among right-handers; this suggests that whatever effect musical training could have in language lateralization, it seems to be modulated by handedness. Implications of these findings for language skills training, rehabilitation programs and selection of musicians are discussed.ca_CA
