          • Auditory-phonological processing = Superior medial and posterior temporal regions
          • Speech-motor processing = Left inferior frontal gyrus and speech-motor cortex
            • Wheat et al (2010); Fast access from print to phonology, left IFG responded within 200ms of word-presentation with MEG
        • Dorsal routes for reading are SHARED with those for repeating spoken words!
      • Ventral reading routes
        • Connects the vwfa to SEMANTIC areas
