Abstract
Previous neuroimaging studies have suggested that children with specific language impairment (SLI) may show subtle anatomical alterations in specific brain regions. We aimed to characterize structural abnormalities in children with SLI using a voxel-wise analysis over the whole brain. Subjects covered a wide age range (5–17 years) in order to assess the dynamic nature of the disorder across childhood. Three-dimensional MRIs were collected from 36 children with SLI and from a comparable group o...
