“Although we now know that reading acquisition systematically converges onto the same region of the cortex, the reason for this precise localization is still shrouded in mystery.”

Which of the following passages from a student paper is NOT patchwritten by the student?

 
  Cognitive neuroscientist Stanislas Dehaene writes that although we know that reading converges in the brain in the cortex, the reason for this is still enveloped in mystery (164).

  It is not yet clear why reading acquisition systematically consolidates onto one region in the brain—specifically, the cortex (Dehaene 164).
  Cognitive neuroscientist Stanislas Dehaene points out that though we know from neuroimaging the exact location in the brain where letters, words, and sentences are comprehended, we still don’t know why it happens there (164).
