Anomia: A language dysfunction characterized by the inability to name people and objects that are correctly perceived. The individual is able to describe the object in question, but cannot provide the name. This condition is associated with lesions of the dominant hemisphere involving the language areas, in particular the TEMPORAL LOBE. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p484)Aphasia: A cognitive disorder marked by an impaired ability to comprehend or express language in its written or spoken form. This condition is caused by diseases which affect the language areas of the dominant hemisphere. Clinical features are used to classify the various subtypes of this condition. General categories include receptive, expressive, and mixed forms of aphasia.Language Therapy: Rehabilitation of persons with language disorders or training of children with language development disorders.Autobiography as Topic: The life of a person written by himself or herself.

Disrupted temporal lobe connections in semantic dementia. (1/70)Semantic dementia refers to the variant of frontotemporal dementia in which there is progressive semantic deterioration and anomia in the face of relative preservation of other language and cognitive functions. Structural imaging and SPECT studies of such patients have suggested that the site of damage, and by inference the region critical to semantic processing, is the anterolateral temporal lobe, especially on the left. Recent functional imaging studies of normal participants have revealed a network of areas involved in semantic tasks. The present study used PET to examine the consequences of focal damage to the anterolateral temporal cortex for the operation of this semantic network. We measured PET activation associated with a semantic decision task relative to a visual decision task in four patients with semantic dementia compared with six age-matched normal controls. Normals activated a network of regions consistent with previous studies. The patients activated some areas consistently with the normals, including some regions of significant atrophy, but showed substantially reduced activity particularly in the left posterior inferior temporal gyrus (iTG) (Brodmann area 37/19). Voxel-based morphometry, used to identify the regions of structural deficit, revealed significant anterolateral temporal atrophy (especially on the left), but no significant structural damage to the posterior inferior temporal lobe. Other evidence suggests that the left posterior iTG is critically involved in lexical-phonological retrieval: the lack of activation here is consistent with the observation that these patients are all anomic. We conclude that changes in activity in regions distant from the patients' structural damage support the argument that their prominent anomia is due to disrupted temporal lobe connections. (+info)
Pure anomic aphasia caused by a subcortical hemorrhage in the left temporo-parieto-occipital lobe. (2/70)There have been few case reports of pure anomic aphasia and the underlying mechanism remains to be clarified. We report a patient in whom pure anomic aphasia was caused by subcortical hemorrhage in the left temporo-parieto-occipital lobe. Based on magnetic resonance images and cerebral blood flow imaging, the structural lesion underlying the pure anomic aphasia was thought to be located at the left temporo-occipital junction. (+info)
Frontotemporal decreases in rCBF correlate with degree of dysnomia in primary progressive aphasia. (3/70)Primary progressive aphasia (PPA) is an uncommon degenerative dementia characterized by gradual impairment of language function with initial sparing of the memory domain. Using semiquantitative 99mTc-hexamethyl propyleneamine oxime (HMPAO) brain SPECT as a measure of regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF), we investigated the relationship between reduced 99mTc-HMPAO uptake and the severity of dysnomia in PPA. METHODS: Seven right-handed patients with PPA had their dysnomia assessed by the Boston Naming Test (BNT), a subtest of the Boston Diagnostic Aphasia Examination. Neuroimaging studies, including 99mTc-HMPAO brain SPECT, CT, and MRI, were performed. Correlational analysis between reduced rCBF and BNT was performed. RESULTS: Brain SPECT showed a reduction in 99mTc-HMPAO uptake involving the frontal and temporal lobes in all 7 patients. CT and MRI showed mild to moderate cerebral atrophy in 4 patients. Low scores on the BNT correlated with low frontotemporal 99mTc-HMPAO (Spearman r = 0.97, P = 0.004) in the 5 patients with left-hemisphere involvement. CONCLUSION: Decreased rCBF to the frontotemporal region characterized the cerebral abnormalities associated with PPA. The finding of focal rCBF abnormalities in the right hemisphere of 2 right-handed women corroborates that PPA symptoms may arise from a "non-left-dominant"-hemisphere degenerative process. Our results support the usefulness of rCBF SPECT imaging as a diagnostic aid in PPA. (+info)
Identification without naming: a functional neuroimaging study of an anomic patient. (4/70)The neural correlates of identification and name retrieval have proved difficult to characterise because both occur highly automatically in normal language processing. Thus, although some evidence points to the left anterior temporal cortex (ATC) as a brain region underlying these functions, its relative role in semantic and lexical retrieval processes is still a matter of debate. Positron emission tomography (PET) was used to measure regional cerebral blood flow responses to famous and non-famous visually presented faces and buildings in a severely anomic patient and in six control subjects, while they were performing a same-different matching task. Because the patient was able to identify the stimuli that he could not name, it was possible to investigate whether the left ATC would respond when identification occurred without name retrieval. Both the patient and the controls activated the left ATC when famous stimuli were compared with non-famous stimuli. This result supports the hypothesis of a predominantly semantic function of the left ATC. (+info)
The Gerstmann syndrome in Alzheimer's disease. (5/70)BACKGROUND: It remains unclear from lesion studies whether the four signs of the Gerstmann syndrome (finger agnosia, acalculia, agraphia, and right-left confusion) cluster because the neuronal nets that mediate these activities have anatomical proximity, or because these four functions share a common network. If there is a common network, with degeneration, as may occur in Alzheimer's disease, each of the signs associated with Gerstmann's syndrome should correlate with the other three signs more closely than they correlate with other cognitive deficits. METHODS: Thirty eight patients with probable Alzheimer's disease were included in a retrospective analysis of neuropsychological functions. RESULTS: The four Gerstmann's syndrome signs did not cluster together. Finger naming and calculations were not significantly correlated. Right-left knowledge and calculations also did not correlate. CONCLUSIONS: The four cognitive functions impaired in Gerstmann's syndrome do not share a common neuronal network, and their co-occurrence with dominant parietal lobe injuries may be related to the anatomical proximity of the different networks mediating these functions.

Development of selective verbal memory impairment secondary to a left thalamic infarct: a longitudinal case study. (6/70)A 68 year old man suffered an acute dysphasic episode with persistent memory disturbance while taking part as a control in a longitudinal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) study. A small new left thalamic infarct involving the mamillo-thalamic tract could be demonstrated on volumetric MRI, coinciding with the development of a selective verbal memory impairment. This suggests that lateralisation of cognitive processing of visual and verbal material exists at the thalamic as well as the cortical level. High resolution volumetric MRI may be helpful in demonstrating small subcortical infarcts that may not be seen using computed tomography or conventional MRI. (+info)
Subcortical pathways serving cortical language sites: initial experience with diffusion tensor imaging fiber tracking combined with intraoperative language mapping. (7/70)The combination of mapping functional cortical neurons by intraoperative cortical stimulation and axonal architecture by diffusion tensor MRI fiber tracking can be used to delineate the pathways between functional regions. In this study the authors investigated the feasibility of combining these techniques to yield connectivity associated with motor speech and naming. Diffusion tensor MRI fiber tracking provides maps of axonal bundles and was combined with intraoperative mapping of eloquent cortex for a patient undergoing brain tumor surgery. Tracks from eight stimulated sites in the inferior frontal cortex including mouth motor, speech arrest, and anomia were generated from the diffusion tensor MRI data. The regions connected by the fiber tracking were compared to foci from previous functional imaging reports on language tasks. Connections were found between speech arrest, mouth motor, and anomia sites and the SMA proper and cerebral peduncle. The speech arrest and a mouth motor site were also seen to connect to the putamen via the external capsule. This is the first demonstration of delineation of subcortical pathways using diffusion tensor MRI fiber tracking with intraoperative cortical stimulation. The combined techniques may provide improved preservation of eloquent regions during neurological surgery, and may provide access to direct connectivity information between functional regions of the brain.

Viscosity and social cohesion in temporal lobe epilepsy. (8/70)Clinical case reports suggest that viscosity, the behavioural tendency to talk repetitively and circumstantially about a restricted range of topics, is common in patients with temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE). Such patients are also reported to exhibit heightened levels of social cohesion, the tendency to become interpersonally "clingy". This "sticky" interpersonal style may be particularly common in TLE patients with a left sided temporal lobe seizure focus. To test this hypothesis, self-report and observer rating scales were developed to assess both viscosity and social cohesion. Subjects consisted of patients with right, left, or bilateral temporal lobe seizure foci, absence or primary generalised tonic-clonic seizures, psychiatric controls (panic disorder patients), and normal controls. Elevations on the viscosity scale were observed primarily in TLE patients with left or bilateral seizure foci. Viscosity scores also correlated with seizure duration and left handedness. No group differences were observed on the social cohesion scale. These findings are consistent with the hypothesis that viscosity results from subtle interictal language disturbances, although other pathogenetic mechanisms are discussed. (+info)
Naming and Knowing Revisited: Eyetracking Correlates of Anomia in Progressive Aphasia
Progressive naming impairment (i.e., anomia) is a core diagnostic symptom of numerous pathologies that impact anterior and inferior portions of the temporal lobe. For patients who experience such regional temporal lobe degeneration, patterns of language loss often parallel the degradation of semantic memory, an etiology of naming impairment known as semantic anomia. Previous studies of semantic anomia have focused extensively on the output of naming attempts by contrasting errors, omissions, and distortions as a function of item-level characteristics (e.g., prototypicality, semantic category). An alternative approach involves evaluating visual confrontation naming as the naming process unfolds. Techniques with high temporal resolution (e.g., eyetracking) offer a potentially sensitive mode of delineating the locus of impairment during naming. For example, a lexical retrieval disorder would hypothetically elicit normal gaze patterns associated with successful visual object recognition regardless ...

Monopolar high-frequency language mapping: can it help in the surgical management of gliomas? A comparative clinical study |...
OBJECT Intraoperative language mapping is traditionally performed with low-frequency bipolar stimulation (LFBS). High-frequency train-of-five stimulation delivered by a monopolar probe (HFMS) is an alternative technique for motor mapping, with a lower reported seizure incidence. The application of HFMS in language mapping is still limited. Authors of this study assessed the efficacy and safety of HFMS for language mapping during awake surgery, exploring its clinical impact compared with that of LFBS. METHODS Fifty-nine patients underwent awake surgery with neuropsychological testing, and LFBS and HFMS were compared. Frequency, type, and site of evoked interference were recorded. Language was scored preoperatively and 1 week and 3 months after surgery. Extent of resection was calculated as well. RESULTS High-frequency monopolar stimulation induced a language disturbance when the repetition rate was set at 3 Hz. Interference with counting (p = 0.17) and naming (p = 0.228) did not vary between HFMS ...
Talking Brains: Not on mirror neurons: Who's stuff do I have to read this week?
The SMG question is the interesting one from our perspective. I am working on a paper right now that proposes that there are two lexica: a ventral lexicon consistent with the H&P model that mediates between phonetic and semantic representations, and a dorsal lexicon in the left SMG that mediates between phonetic and articulatory representations. Significantly, both give feedback to the STG providing two possible normalization or top-down facilitation mechanisms. This view would explain a number of phenomena including dissociations between form and semantic priming effects in normals using the same materials in work by Dennis Norris and others, the existence of both parietal and temporal forms of anomia, and BOLD imaging results showing SMG sensitivity to lexical neighborhood density (c.f. Prabhakaran et al., 2006, Neuropsychologia). Fadigas lab has produced several results that suggest that premotor activation in speech perception is influenced by lexicality and word frequency, so it seems ...

Recovery of language in stroke-induced aphasia is little understood, with extant theories suggesting that ipsilesional and/or contralesional tissue may be recruited into the language network. However, several cognitive and neural factors contribute to recovery patterns, including language deficit, lesion volume/location, and neurophysiological variables. In this talk I will present first-phase findings derived from the Center for the Neurobiology of Language Recovery, a multisite NIH funded project focused on recovery of anomia (Boston University, Harvard MGH), dysgraphia (Johns Hopkins University) and sentence processing (Northwestern University), respectively. Results of cross-site projects will be presented, including BOLD signal patterns and activation reliability, perfusion patterns, and right-hemisphere density found in over 50 chronic stroke aphasic participants. The neurobiology of recovered sentence processing also will be discussed, emphasizing the effects of treatment versus natural ...

Notes: December 2012
Seeley et. al published a fascinating paper entitled "Unravelling Bolero: progressive aphasia, transmodal creativity and the right posterior neocortex" in Brain, 2008. I dont discuss a lot of papers as I think theyre dry and not everyone can get access, but I came across this one and found it curious. One way of approaching neurologic injury is to localize a disease process ("wheres the lesion?") and then see what deficits result. For example, a stroke in the motor strip of the brain will lead to contralateral weakness, and so it can be inferred that the affected anatomy has something to do with motor function. But the authors discuss an interesting idea: some lesions in the brain can stimulate new artistic or musical talents. Maurice Ravel was a French composer best known for his orchestral work "Bolero." Near the end of his career, he developed a progressive language and motor disorder. There are hypotheses that as his speech declined, his musical prowess heightened. The authors of this ...

The brain is usually associated with the thinking process, memory, cognition, logic or concentration. However, the real mechanism of action of this highly-evolved structure might leave you amazed. Let us take the lateralization of brain function. As discussed before, there are two distinct cerebral halves separated by a median fissure.. Studies show that each human being evolves in his own manner and has his own unique lateralization. The left hemisphere is associated with action and strongly related to emotional impulses that can lead to risky behaviors or unwise decisions. The manner of speech and muscular movement seem to be more dominant in this case. The right hemisphere on the other hand is connected to logical thinking and visuospatial attention. According to a study published in 2013, left hemisphere regions tend to interact with the same hemisphere, while right-hemisphere constituents are likely to do so with both halves. Still, their functions remain largely related. For example, if a ...

"PREDICTORS OF APHASIA TREATMENT OUTCOME" by Julius Fridriksson
Purpose: Treatment for aphasia, a communication disorder resulting from damage to speech and language areas of the brain, has often been guided by clinical intuition and pragmatism. This manuscript aimed to identify predictors of effective aphasia treatment that could better indicate a patients prognosis. Method: This retrospective study analyzed behavioral and neurophysiological data collected from 26 individuals with chronic aphasia who had undergone intensive semantic and phonological treatment for anomia, a naming impairment common among all aphasic patients. Using trained and untrained items as measures of correct naming improvement, the following analyses were performed: 1) a partial correlation examined whether participants who began the semantic treatment first improved to a greater degree than participants who began the phonological treatment first; 2) a simple linear regression tested whether the average number of paradigm completions (APC) predicted an individuals change in correct naming;
"Script Training: The role of Written Cues" by Hallie Cohen
Script training is a technique that allows persons with acquired speech and language disorders, such as nonfluent aphasia, to have islands of fluent speech during which they can speak about a topic without pausing or having word-finding errors. Scripts relevant to specific functional situations are written and practiced until memorized. Script training delivered verbally has been effective with clients with aphasia but the role of written cues in the training has not been explored. Therefore the purpose of this study was to compare the effectiveness of script training taught verbally, or verbally with a written script, in persons with aphasia. Three adults, one with Brocas aphasia and apraxia of speech (AOS), one with Brocas aphasia, and one with Anomic aphasia were recruited for this study. Participants selected three topics for script training and with the clinicians help wrote a script and a script prompt for each topic. Scripts were trained one sentence or phrase at a time until 95% repetition

Aphasia NYC Blogger: What is Aphasia? | Types of Aphasia | Causes of Aphasia
Aphasia usually results from lesions to the language-relevant areas of the temporal and parietal cortex of the brain, such as Brocas area, Wernickes area, and the neural pathways between them. These areas are almost always located in the left hemisphere, and in most people this is where the ability to produce and comprehendlanguage is found. However, in a very small number of people, language ability is found in the right hemisphere. In either case, damage to these language areas can be caused by a stroke, traumatic brain injury, or other brain injury. Aphasia may also develop slowly, as in the case of a brain tumor or progressive neurological disease, e.g., Alzheimers or Parkinsons disease. It may also be caused by a sudden hemorrhagic event within the brain. Certain chronic neurological disorders, such as epilepsy or migraine, can also include transient aphasia as a prodromal or episodic symptom. Aphasia is also listed as a rare side effect of the fentanyl patch, an opioid used to control ...

Constraint-Induced Therapy of Chronic Aphasia After Stroke | Stroke
The present study demonstrates that improvement of language performance in chronic aphasia after stroke can be achieved by intensive CI aphasia therapy in only a few days. After ∼32 hours of treatment given over 10 days, substantial improvement occurred in language performance on a standard test for aphasia and an increase of the patients verbal communication in everyday life. That significant language improvements were obtained over such a short period of time in patients with chronic aphasia (average, 8.3 years after onset) is noteworthy.. Most earlier studies found either no effect of aphasia therapy18 or significant effects if treatment began within 6 months after onset of the disease and was administered several hours a week for several months.19 20 21 22 23 24 It is generally agreed that a plateau in language function is reached within the first year after stroke.1 Scattered reports indicate that therapy can produce improvements in linguistic ability after the first year after stroke, ...

This woman had a choked disc, bitemporal hemianopsia, and sensory hypaesthesia of her right side. In addition to this she had a peculiar slowness of speech and weakness of the right lower face with suggestive anomia. I had a suspicion that she might very likely have a left temporal tumor though I could not account for the bitemporal hemianopsia on this basis. Ventriculograms seemed in order and these show normal ventricles with what appears to be a filling defect in the third ventricle. I have been given to understand that the left temporal horn is normal. It seemed best, therefore, to have a look at the chiasm at least to see whether anything was present there and if not to leave the usual right-sided large flap decompression so that the ventricles might be allowed to dilate and the lesion attacked by a trans-ventricular incision. The operation was relayed with Dr. Horrax. ...
Language recovery and evidence of residual deficits after nonthalamic subcortical stroke: A 1 year follow-up study
A variety of language disturbances including aphasia have been described after subcortical stroke but less is known about the factors that influence the long-term recovery of stroke-induced language dysfunction. We prospectively examined the role of the affected hemisphere and the lesion site in the occurrence and recovery of language deficits in nonthalamic subcortical stroke. Forty patients with unilateral basal gangliastroke underwent language assessment within 1 week, 3 months and 1 year after stroke. Disturbances in at least one language domain were observed in 35 patients during the first week post stroke including aphasia diagnosed in 11 patients. Importantly, the appearance of deficits after stroke onset and the improvement of language function were not determined by the site of subcortical lesion, but instead were critically influenced by the affected hemisphere. In fact, the language impairments following left and right basal ganglia stroke mirrored the language dysfunction observed ...
Slowly progressive aphasia: three cases with language, memory, CT and PET data. | Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery &...
Three cases of slowly progressive speech and language disturbance were studied at various points post onset (three, five and 15 years respectively). Language, neuropsychological and brain imaging (computer tomography and positron emission tomography) evaluations were completed on all three patients. The data suggest that the syndrome of "progressive aphasia": 1) does not involve a uniform symptom complex; 2) does not necessarily develop into a full blown dementia syndrome; 3) varies greatly in rate of progression from case to case; 4) is associated with normal brain structure (on computer tomography); and 5) is associated with abnormal left temporal lobe metabolism as measured by fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography (PET). One patient had histological findings consistent with Alzheimers disease at necropsy.. ...

Talking Brains: Role of the anterior temporal lobe in semantic word retrieval
A new lesion study from Myrna Schwartz group has recently appeared in the advance access section of the journal Brain. The study examines semantic word retrieval in aphasia using a picture naming task. For years this group has been doing fantastic psycholinguistically informed modeling work (with Gary Dell) on naming errors in aphasia and now adds lesion correlation to their arsenal. Using voxel-based lesion symptom mapping (VLSM) in a sample of 64 aphasics, the authors correlated semantic error rate in naming (misnaming elephant as zebra) with the presence or absence of lesion on a voxel-by-voxel basis. They also administered control tasks, one set that sought to identify non-verbal semantic comprehension deficits (Pyramid and Palms & Camel and Catus Tests) and another that sought to identify verbal comprehension (a word-to-picture matching test & a synonym judgment test). The non-verbal control is the most important because it rules out deficits caused by visual analysis of pictured stimuli ...
Effectiveness of Intensive Aphasia Therapy Under Routine Clinical Conditions - Full Text View - ClinicalTrials.gov
Aims of the study:. This multicenter randomized placebo-controlled study aims to examine whether integrative intensive (, 10 hours/week for at least 3 weeks) language and communication therapy administered under routine clinical conditions translates into a statistically significant functional improvement of everyday communication in patients with chronic aphasia (i.e., aphasia persisting for 6 or more months after the stroke). A further aim is to examine whether therapy-induced improvements are still maintained over a period of six months. The studys results may lead to more targeted treatment regimens and thus to an enhancement of health-related quality of life in persons with chronic aphasia. The data will further provide evidence-based guidelines of best practice in the rehabilitation of persons with chronic aphasia.. Methods:. Fourteen in- and outpatient rehabilitation centres across Germany participate in the study. Via a digital randomization procedure, patients are allocated to one of ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Interaction-focussed therapy for aphasia. T2 - effects on communication and quality of life. AU - Barnes, Scott. AU - Nickels, Lyndsey. PY - 2018. Y1 - 2018. N2 - Purpose: This study examined the effects of an interaction-focussed therapy for aphasia, which involved both people with aphasia and their familiar conversation partners. It was hypothesised the interaction-focussed therapy would lead to positive changes in targeted conversation behaviours, and improved quality of life for participants with aphasia. Method: Three people with chronic aphasia and three of their familiar conversation partners completed an 8-week interaction-focussed therapy programme. A series of single case multiple-baseline ABA experiments were conducted. Outcome measures focussed on changes in targeted behaviours between pre- and post-therapy conversation samples, and changes in quality of life. Result: All participant dyads improved their conversations. Familiar conversation partners demonstrated ...
The measurement of stability in aphasia recovery: implications for language modelling
Background: Performance stability is an implicit assumption within theoretical explanations of aphasia. The assumption being that when completing language processing tasks, performance will be stable from moment to moment and day to day. Theoretically, aphasia is most commonly viewed within a modular framework. that is, language processing is carried out by specific, specialised language processing modules. Aphasia is thought to result when one of these modules is dammed leading to a unique pattern of performance results. Implicit to this view of aphasia is stability, once damaged, the module will no longer be accessed and any process using the module will be impaired. This theory of aphasia is widely held within both research and clinical communities and underlies many of our approaches to the assessment and treatment of aphasia. However more recently researchers have been expressing doubts about the validity of assuming stability in aphasia performance. Instead variability in performance is ...

Aphasia is a serious acquired communication disability, that affects approximately 30% of stroke survivors.1 It is chronic in nature: 50% of people diagnosed with aphasia have persistent communication problems 1 year after stroke.2 Aphasia compromises an individuals ability to undertake many activities of daily living, resulting in reduced mood and quality of life.3,4 In addition to the personal cost of aphasia, health-care costs for people with aphasia are the highest in stroke care.5 Therefore, the recent identification of recovery from aphasia as one of the top ten research priorities related to life after stroke is unsurprising.. ...

Parrot Software Therapy for Aphasia
Usually, aphasias are a result of brain damage (lesions) caused by head injury, to the language centers of the brain such as the Brocas area. These areas are almost always located in the left hemisphere, and in most people this is where the ability to produce and comprehend language is found. However, in a very small number of people, language ability is found in the right hemisphere. In either case, brain damage to these language areas can be caused by a stroke, traumatic brain injury, or other head injury. Aphasia may also develop slowly, as in the case of a brain tumor or progressive neurological disease. It may also be caused by a sudden hemorrhagic event within the brain. Certain chronic neurological disorders, such as epilepsy or migraine, can also include transient aphasia as a prodromal or episodic symptom ...

Re: [SOAP Encoding Issue] Support for XML Schema Types from Pete Hendry on 2001-10-24 ([email protected] from October 2001)
This causes some difficulty for code generation. What is a code generator to generate for an anonymous type? If it simply generates a random name then how is the developer to know which generated language type maps to which anonymous schema type. I dont really see the usefulness of this apart from to say that support for XML types is complete. I sent a mail some time ago to soapbuilders about other language mapping difficulties such as restriction of complex types and substitution groups. Should these also be raised as issues of how they should be supported in SOAP? Perhaps we should just accept that SOAP requires some restrictions placed on what is available from XML Schema to make it usable and interoperable?

- For patients who experience such regional temporal lobe degeneration, patterns of language loss often parallel the degradation of semantic memory, an etiology of naming impairment known as semantic anomia. (frontiersin.org)
- The etiology of impairment in anomia often, but not always, manifests as a distinctive error pattern. (frontiersin.org)
- Previous studies of semantic anomia have focused extensively on the output of naming attempts by contrasting errors, omissions, and distortions as a function of item-level characteristics (e.g., prototypicality, semantic category). (frontiersin.org)
- The inconsistencies observed in the CNT studies were probably due to the presence of anomia in almost 50% of the RD patients . (bvsalud.org)
