We used functional brain imaging to study brain activation patterns when 16 native speakers read phrases in Devanagari, a writing system with alphabetic and syllabic properties. We found activation in the left insula, fusiform gyrus and inferior frontal gyrus, as seen for reading alphabetic scripts and in the right superior parietal lobule as associated with reading syllabic scripts. Additionally, we found bilateral activation in the middle frontal gyrus (Lt. BA 46, Rt. BA 6/44) which we attribute to complex visuo-spatial processing required for reading Devanagari, wherein consonants are placed linearly from left to right and vowels positioned non-linearly around them
