Question Check all of the following that are true. Answer a. PET is a non-invasive technique for imaging brain activity in awake behaving subjects. b. Broca's area is situated near the motor areas that control speech output, whereas Wernickes's area is near cortical areas involved in auditory processing and imagery. c. As is typical of the high degree of overlap and integration of cortical processing during complex behaviors, the cortical areas activated by looking at words, hearing words, and pronouncing words overlap almost completely. d.
