We defined 7-mm spheres in three clusters showing greater response to verbs than to nouns in the localizer experiment. Spheres were defined around peak coordinates of those clusters avoiding overlap. Any sphere not showing greater response to the contrast verbs versus baseline in the main experiment (p < .05 uncorrected for multiple comparisons) was excluded as ROI (i.e., infIFG(a)).
