    Abstract

    The main goal of the present study was to examine the cerebral regions associated with the lexical and idiomatic ambiguity resolution. In our experimentation by fMRI, we specially refer to two goals. The first goal was to show the difference between the activation areas related to several kinds of ambiguities. The second goal was to reveal the difference of the activation areas related to ambiguity resolution. In result, there are activations in not only the left temporal lobe but also right hemisphere, more particularly the right frontal lobe and the right temporal lobe.
