Hi

Thanks for posting your query

Left Superior temporal gyrus is the part of left brain located on the left side of head just above the ear

The superior temporal gyrus contains the primary auditory cortex, which is responsible for processing sounds.

Non specific punctuate focus of probable chronic microhemorrhage means there is some bleeding microscopic which has been there for quiet some time and is not causing any issues

This could be due to hpertension and/or antiplatelet agents etc

Hope this helps
