Neuropsychological tests involving word generation are very commonly applied in patients with brain disease. In this work we present, for the first time, an fMRI study of a written version of the phonemic fluency task that can reliably reproduce all the previously reported activation. AS additional validation we also show that the cerebellar activation foci associated with the written phonemic fluency task which is agree with previously reported lesion analysis results.
