motor processing, whereas functional connectivity observed between the right fusiform gyrus and both the bilateral inferior/middle occipital gyrus and the right middle frontal gyrus likely supports orthographic processing. Moreover, the functional connectivity between the left inferior frontal gyrus and left superior frontal gyrus reflected the interaction between linguistic and
motor processes, supporting the interactive hypothesis concerning the relationship between central and peripheral processes of writing. These findings illustrate the neural mechanisms of Chinese writing, extending our knowledge of the cognitive processing required for this form of human communication.
