  Superior longitudinal fasciculus (slf)
           
 
Connects:
  Frontotemporal and frontoparietal regions; also called arcuate
      fasciculus
     
Function:
  Integration of auditory and speech nuclei    
       
Clinical:
  Interruption/insult decreases ability to repeat spoken language; can    
  cause unilateral neglect
