I am interested in learning about the neural mechanisms behind tinnitus, and was wondering if someone could help me to name the parts of the brain on this image that show increased activity in tinnitus sufferers.

enter image description here

From what I understand, the large area showing increased activity is the auditory cortex in the temporal lobe, although my knowledge of brain anatomy is not good enough to identify the others (though I have tried!)

What are the names of the areas showing increased activity for the tinnitus group in the above image?

    $\begingroup$ @AliceD Without knowing the other question, I think you are overinterpreting this question as it is written. The author wants to interpret a specific, provided image by visual inspection, and hence this is an answerable question. $\endgroup$ – Christian Hummeluhr Mar 20 '15 at 11:12

    $\begingroup$ @AliceD That interpretation would make the question too broad to answer. It is obviously only meaningful for a provided image. Since I assume the author meant the question to be amenable to answering, I proposed an appropriate edit. $\endgroup$ – Christian Hummeluhr Mar 20 '15 at 11:22
