Language learning and brain reorganization in a 3.5-year-old child with left perinatal stroke revealed using structural and functional connectivity

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Brain imaging methods have contributed to shed light on the possible mechanisms of recovery and cortical reorganization after early brain insult. The idea that a functional left hemisphere is crucial for achieving a normalized pattern of language development after left perinatal stroke is still under debate. We report the case of a 3.5-year-old boy born at term with a perinatal ischemic stroke of the left middle cerebral artery, affecting mainly the supramarginal gyrus, superior parietal and insular cortex extending to the precentral and postcentral gyri. Neurocognitive development was assessed at 25 and 42 months of age. Language outcomes were more extensively evaluated at the latter age with measures on receptive vocabulary, phonological whole-word production and linguistic complexity in spontaneous speech. Word learning abilities were assessed using a fast-mapping task to assess immediate and delayed recall of newly mapped words. Functional and structural imaging data as well as a measure of intrinsic connectivity were also acquired. While cognitive, motor and language levels from the Bayley Scales fell within the average range at 25 months, language scores were below at 42 months. Receptive vocabulary fell within normal limits but whole word production was delayed and the child had limited spontaneous speech. Critically, the child showed clear difficulties in both the immediate and delayed recall of the novel words, significantly differing from an age-matched control group. Neuroimaging data revealed spared classical cortical language areas but an affected left dorsal white-matter pathway together with right lateralized functional activations. In the framework of the model for Social Communication and Language Development, these data confirm the important role of the left arcuate fasciculus in understanding and producing morpho-syntactic elements in sentences beyond two word combinations and, most importantly, in learning novel word-referent associations, a building block of language acquisition.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
rain imaging methods have largely contributed to shed light on the possible mechanisms of recovery and cortical reorganization after early brain insult. The idea that a functional left hemisphere is crucial for achieving a normalized pattern of language development after left perinatal stroke is still under debate. Here, we report an interesting case of a 3 year-old child born at term with a left perinatal ischemic stroke of the left middle cerebral artery, affecting the superior temporal gyrus and extending to the supra-marginal gyrus. We evaluated the child for cognitive, social and linguistic abilities at 3 years of age. Linguistic learning abilities were also assessed using a fast-mapping task adapted for preschoolers and mimicking the first steps of language acquisition. Moreover, we acquired functional and structural imaging data as well as a measure of intrinsic connectivity. Despite having linguistic receptive functions within the normal range, the child had clear difficulties in the productive aspects of language, was impaired in learning new word-referent associations, showed a right lateralized pattern of BOLD activation during a passive listening task and had a disrupted left arcuate fasciculus. These data suggest an important role of the left hemisphere and specifically of the arcuate fasciculus for the learning of novel word-referent associations, one of the building block of vocabulary acquisition.

ABSTRACT:
BACKGROUND
Little is known on the effect of early brain lesion on the acquisition of language in infants. Patients who suffered a left hemisphere injury during prenatal or perinatal periods are of great interest, as they present individual differences in their degree of language recovery. Only few fMRI data collected in children with perinatal left-hemisphere brain lesions have brought evidence that the undamaged right-hemisphere is able to take over language functions as revealed by near to normal linguistic processing, thus supporting a model of recovery based on inter-hemispheric transfer of function. It is still an open question to which extent language reorganization and plasticity processes occurring after an early brain insult is enough for normal language development.
AIMS
We aimed at better understanding how functional and structural connectivity during brain maturation is reorganized after perinatal ischemic stroke and its impact in language development.
METHOD
Neurocognitive development was assessed at 25-42 months of age after perinatal stroke (N=10). Word learning abilities were also assessed using a fast-mapping task. Functional and structural (DTI)-MRI imaging was measured (including intrinsic connectivity).
RESULTS
The combination of functional and structural MRI as well as language and language learning measures, showed that children who had a stroke affecting crucial language areas, including white-matter pathways of the left hemisphere, are especially vulnerable to the negative impact of the stroke on their later language outcomes.
CONCLUSION
These results suggest that the amount of right lateralized reorganization induced by early left lesion predicts better outcomes in language development.
