The correlated networks of [sup.18]F-FDG and [sup.11]C-pPIB covered the MFG, ACC, PCC/precuneus, STG, temporal pole, and orbitofrontal gyrus and largely colocalized with the DMN [22, 23].
Caption: Figure 5: Vertex-based thickness analysis demonstrated bilateral thinner cortices in the lateral occipital gyrus, entorhinal cortex, temporal pole, and cingulate cortex in MCI converters from 1 year before they progressed to AD, where the entorhinal cortex presented the most severe shrinkage.
In this study, we found that gray matter density of right temporal pole superior (RTPS) in elite karate players' brain regions was higher than others.
Furthermore, an enhanced functional connectivity exists between temporal poles and DMN regions, including the precuneus, inferior parietal lobule, medial frontal cortex, cingulate cortex, ventromedial orbitofrontal cortex, and hippocampus in drug-induced hyperthyroid patients [15].
These significantly different nodes were mainly concentrated in the bilateral lenticular nucleus: the putamen; bilateral lingual gyrus; bilateral amygdala; bilateral thalamus; bilateral median cingulate and paracingulate gyri; right posterior cingulate gyrus; bilateral cuneus; left anterior cingulate and paracingulate gyri; right superior frontal gyrus, orbital part; right middle frontal gyrus; right temporal pole; middle temporal gyrus; left precentral gyrus; right lenticular nucleus; pallidum; and so forth.

The researchers found that a similar region - the temporal pole, which is the most anterior part of the temporal lobe - was activated when both the animals and people heard human voices.
Brain regions that were activated more by real acupuncture stimulation than by sham point acupuncture were mostly located in the left inferior frontal gyrus, right superior medial prefrontal gyrus (right BA 10), left mid-orbital gyrus, right medial temporal pole (right BA 38), left parahippocampal gyrus, left precuneus (left BA 23), left fusiform gyrus (left BA 20), left pallidum, and left middle occipital gyrus.
Hypoperfusion in the prefrontal pole, combined with decreased anterior temporal pole perfusion or with focal decreases, is often indicative of traumatic brain injury (Kant et al.
The atrophy involved primarily thinning or shrinkage of the cortex in the medial temporal lobe, temporal pole, and superior frontal gyrus--all areas identified in prior research as brain regions likely to be affected in people with AD.
Measurements of the right hemisphere involved only the temporal pole, entorhinal cortex, and inferior frontal gyrus.
