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.
Cholinergic bundle of nerve fibers posterior to the anterior perforated substance. It interconnects the paraterminal gyrus in the septal area with the hippocampus and lateral olfactory area.
An aphasia characterized by impairment of expressive LANGUAGE (speech, writing, signs) and relative preservation of receptive language abilities (i.e., comprehension). This condition is caused by lesions of the motor association cortex in the FRONTAL LOBE (BROCA AREA and adjacent cortical and white matter regions).
A progressive form of dementia characterized by the global loss of language abilities and initial preservation of other cognitive functions. Fluent and nonfluent subtypes have been described. Eventually a pattern of global cognitive dysfunction, similar to ALZHEIMER DISEASE, emerges. Pathologically, there are no Alzheimer or PICK DISEASE like changes, however, spongiform changes of cortical layers II and III are present in the TEMPORAL LOBE and FRONTAL LOBE. (From Brain 1998 Jan;121(Pt 1):115-26)
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)
A type of fluent aphasia characterized by an impaired ability to repeat one and two word phrases, despite retained comprehension. This condition is associated with dominant hemisphere lesions involving the arcuate fasciculus (a white matter projection between Broca's and Wernicke's areas) and adjacent structures. Like patients with Wernicke aphasia (APHASIA, WERNICKE), patients with conduction aphasia are fluent but commit paraphasic errors during attempts at written and oral forms of communication.

The two major subtypes of this condition are ideomotor (see APRAXIA, IDEOMOTOR) and ideational apraxia, which refers to loss of the ability to mentally formulate the processes involved with performing an action. For example, dressing apraxia may result from an inability to mentally formulate the act of placing clothes on the body. Apraxias are generally associated with lesions of the dominant PARIETAL LOBE and supramarginal gyrus. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp56-7)

Electrophysiological manifestations of open- and closed-class words in patients with Broca's aphasia with agrammatic comprehension. An event-related brain potential study. (1/111)

This paper presents electrophysiological data on the on-line processing of open- and closed-class words in patients with Broca's aphasia with agrammatic comprehension. Event-related brain potentials were recorded from the scalp when Broca patients and non-aphasic control subjects were visually presented with a story in which the words appeared one at a time on the screen. Separate waveforms were computed for open- and closed-class words. The non-aphasic control subjects showed clear differences between the processing of open- and closed-class words in an early (210-375 ms) and a late (400-700 ms) time-window. The early electrophysiological differences reflect the first manifestation of the availability of word-category information from the mental lexicon. The late differences presumably relate to post-lexical semantic and syntactic processing. In contrast to the control subjects, the Broca patients showed no early vocabulary class effect and only a limited late effect. The results suggest that an important factor in the agrammatic comprehension deficit of Broca's aphasics is a delayed and/or incomplete availability of word-class information.  (+info)

Cross-modal generalization effects of training noncanonical sentence comprehension and production in agrammatic aphasia. (2/111)

The cross-modal generalization effects of training complex sentence comprehension and complex sentence production were examined in 4 individuals with agrammatic Broca's aphasia who showed difficulty comprehending and producing complex, noncanonical sentences. Object-cleft and passive sentences were selected for treatment because the two are linguistically distinct, relying on wh-and NP movement, respectively (Chomsky, 1986). Two participants received comprehension training, and 2 received production training using linguistic specific treatment (LST). LST takes participants through a series of steps that emphasize the verb and verb argument structure, as well as the linguistic movement required to derive target sentences. A single-subject multiple-baseline design across behaviors was used to measure acquisition and generalization within and across sentence types, as well as cross-modal generalization (i.e., from comprehension to production and vice versa) and generalization to discourse. Results indicated that both treatment methods were effective for training comprehension and production of target sentences and that comprehension treatment resulted in generalization to spoken and written sentence production. Sentence production treatment generalized to written sentence production only; generalization to comprehension did not occur. Across sentence types generalization also did not occur, as predicted, and the effects of treatment on discourse were inconsistent across participants. These data are discussed with regard to models of normal sentence comprehension and production.  (+info)

Vascular aphasias: main characteristics of patients hospitalized in acute stroke units. (3/111)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Aphasia is frequent in stroke patients and is associated with poor prognosis. However, characteristics and determinants of vascular aphasias remain controversial. The aim of this study was to evaluate aphasia characteristics at the acute stage in patients admitted to a stroke unit. METHODS: The study was performed in 308 patients consecutively assessed with a standardized aphasia battery. RESULTS: Aphasia was observed in 207 patients; global and nonclassified aphasias accounted for 50% of aphasic syndromes at the acute stage, whereas classic aphasias (Wernicke's, Broca's, transcortical, and subcortical aphasias) were less frequent. Age differed across aphasic syndromes in ischemic stroke patients only; patients with conduction aphasia were younger, and patients with subcortical aphasia were older. Sex did not significantly differ across aphasic syndromes. The presence of a previous stroke was more frequent in nonclassified aphasia. CONCLUSIONS: This study shows (1) that vascular aphasias are frequently severe or nonclassic at the acute stage, a finding explained in part by the presence of a previous stroke; (2) that the age effect is due mainly to its influence on infarct location; and (3) that the main determinant of aphasia characteristics is lesion location.  (+info)

West Nile virus meningoencephalitis complicated by motor aphasia in Hodgkin's lymphoma. (4/111)

A 4 year old boy with Hodgkin's lymphoma was admitted to the paediatric ward with meningoencephalitis dominated by generalised seizures and motor aphasia. Serum IgM specific antibodies to West Nile virus were positive. In view of ongoing neurological deterioration and immunocompromised state he was treated with oral ribavirin for 14 days. A gradual improvement was noted within two weeks of therapy initiation, and with intensive supportive care he recovered completely after four months.  (+info)

Postictal mixed transcortical aphasia. (5/111)

Postictal aphasia has been described in left temporal lobe seizures. It may be of fluent, non-fluent or global type. We present here a patient who displayed signs of mixed transcortical aphasia (MTCA). The patient was a 67 year old man who underwent excision of a left frontal parasagittal meningioma in 1987. Since then he has been treated with phenytoin for generalized tonic-clonic seizures (GTCS). He was admitted in status epilepticus. On awakening, the patient was non-fluent with palilalia and echolalia. His repetition was relatively preserved but all the other language functions were impaired. This picture faded away within a few hours. Brain CT, performed during this postictal state, was normal except for signs related to frontal craniotomy. SPECT, which was performed after language functions returned to normal, displayed left frontal, cingular and insular hypoperfusion. The postictal language dysfunction of the patient corresponded to MTCA. Although our case has frontal, he had no other structural lesion that could explain either diffuse ischemia of the left hemisphere or watershed areas secondary to the generalized seizures. The uniqueness of this case is the combination of postictal MTCA with good prognosis.  (+info)

Speech production: Wernicke, Broca and beyond. (6/111)

We investigated the brain systems engaged during propositional speech (PrSp) and two forms of non- propositional speech (NPrSp): counting and reciting overlearned nursery rhymes. Bilateral cerebral and cerebellar regions were involved in the motor act of articulation, irrespective of the type of speech. Three additional, left-lateralized regions, adjacent to the Sylvian sulcus, were activated in common: the most posterior part of the supratemporal plane, the lateral part of the pars opercularis in the posterior inferior frontal gyrus and the anterior insula. Therefore, both NPrSp and PrSp were dependent on the same discrete subregions of the anatomically ill-defined areas of Wernicke and Broca. PrSp was also dependent on a predominantly left-lateralized neural system distributed between multi-modal and amodal regions in posterior inferior parietal, anterolateral and medial temporal and medial prefrontal cortex. The lateral prefrontal and paracingulate cortical activity observed in previous studies of cued word retrieval was not seen with either NPrSp or PrSp, demonstrating that normal brain- language representations cannot be inferred from explicit metalinguistic tasks. The evidence from this study indicates that normal communicative speech is dependent on a number of left hemisphere regions remote from the classic language areas of Wernicke and Broca. Destruction or disconnection of discrete left extrasylvian and perisylvian cortical regions, rather than the total extent of damage to perisylvian cortex, will account for the qualitative and quantitative differences in the impaired speech production observed in aphasic stroke patients.  (+info)

Selective priming of syntactic processing by event-related transcranial magnetic stimulation of Broca's area. (7/111)

It remains controversial whether Broca's aphasia is an articulatory deficit, a lexical-access problem, or agrammatism. In spite of recent neuroimaging studies, the causal link between cortical activity and linguistic subcomponents has not been elucidated. Here we report an experiment with event-related transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to clarify the role of Broca's area, more specifically, the left inferior frontal gyrus (F3op/F3t), in syntactic processing. An experimental paradigm contrasted sentences requiring syntactic decisions with those requiring semantic decisions. We found selective priming effects on syntactic decisions when TMS was administered to the left F3op/F3t at a specific timing, but not to the left middle frontal gyrus (F2). Our results provide direct evidence of the involvement of the left F3op/F3t in syntactic processing.  (+info)

Word retrieval learning modulates right frontal cortex in patients with left frontal damage. (8/111)

Previous studies have suggested that recovery or compensation of language function after a lesion in the left hemisphere may depend on mechanisms in the right hemisphere. However, a direct relationship between performance and right hemisphere activity has not been established. Here, we show that patients with left frontal lesions and partially recovered aphasia learn, at a normal rate, a novel word retrieval task that requires the damaged cortex. Verbal learning is accompanied by specific response decrements in right frontal and right occipital cortex, strongly supporting the compensatory role of the right hemisphere. Furthermore, responses in left occipital cortex are abnormal and not modulated by practice. These findings indicate that frontal cortex is a source of top-down signals during learning.  (+info)

Brocas aphasia, or non-fluent aphasia, is language disorder after stroke. See a video of a man with Brocas aphasia. Learn what it is & how to help.
Twenty Brocas aphasia patients were stimulated with four cues in a picture-naming task. Among the severe aphasics in the group, presentation of a word to be imitated was the most effective cue and presentation of the initial syllable of the word ranked second. Sentence completion and printed word cues were equally effective and ranked third. Mild aphasic patients responded equally well to all four classes of cues. Reliability measures indicated that the order of potency of cues for the severe group was stable over time. Oral apraxia did not appear to contribute significantly to the severity of Brocas aphasia in any of these subjects. Possible explanations are presented for the effectiveness of cues studied.
Article by Tactus Therapy. Brocas aphasia is one kind of aphasia (language loss). Conduction aphasia results in difficulty with repetition. Brain cells die when blood flow or oxygen flow to a particular part of the brain is stopped or diminished. There is no one method for preventing Brocas aphasia or any type of aphasia. This nerve is mainly responsible for movement of the hand; despite passing…, Cooking for the entire family is a big task, but there are a lot of kitchen gadgets out there to make it less hassle and more fun. The major causes are a cerebral vascular accident (), or head trauma, but aphasia can also be the result of brain tumors, brain infections, or neurodegenerative diseases.However, the latter are far less common and so not as often mentioned when discussing aphasia.

People suffering from damage to this area may show a condition called Brocas aphasia (sometimes known as expressive aphasia, motor aphasia, or nonfluent aphasia), which makes them unable to create grammatically-complex sentences: their speech is often described as telegraphic and contains little but content words. Patients are usually aware that they cannot speak properly. Comprehension in Brocas aphasia is relatively normal, although many studies have demonstrated that Brocas aphasics have trouble understanding certain kinds of syntactically complex sentences. [6] This type of aphasia can be contrasted with Wernickes aphasia, named for Karl Wernicke, which is characterized by damage to more posterior regions of the left hemisphere in the superior temporal lobe. Wernickes aphasia manifests as a more pronounced impairment in comprehension. Thus, while speech production remains normal grammatically, it is nonetheless often roundabout, vague, or meaningless. It is therefore also known as ...

Expressive aphasia, also known as Brocas aphasia, is a neurological condition characterized by an individuals inability to produce grammatically correct speech, often due to a physical impact or alteration to the anterior regions of the brain, which impairs the proper function of neurons that would otherwise help construct vocalizations of grammatically correct sentences [1]. In the suburbs of Paris, France in 1861, Paul Broca identified the location of the region responsible for expressive aphasia after he conducted an autopsy of a patient incapable of uttering any word other than tan [2]. Though speculations of the structure and function of human consciousness had existed for several centuries, Brocas discovery resulted in a new framework for understanding the brains role in producing conscious experience. The patients brain incurred a lesion from injury, and only a small subset of his cognitive function was impaired. Naturally, psychologists concluded that different parts of the brain ...
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

In extreme cases, patients may be only able to produce a single word. The most famous case of this was Paul Brocas patient Leborgne, nicknamed Tan, after the only syllable he could say. Even in such cases, over-learned and rote-learned speech patterns may be retained[2]-for instance, some patients can count from one to ten, but cannot produce the same numbers in ordinary conversation. While word comprehension is generally preserved, meaning interpretation dependent on syntax and phrase structure is substantially impaired. This can be demonstrated by using phrases with unusual structures. A typical Brocas aphasic patient will misinterpret the dog is bitten by the man by switching the subject and object.[3] Patients who recover go on to say that they knew what they wanted to say but could not express themselves. Residual deficits will often be seen. ...

Background: Studies devoted to improving past tense verb production in Brocas aphasic patients are sparse. Of the existing studies few have produced generalised improvement on untreated verbs, although one study has shown improvement on untreated regular, but not irregular, verbs (Weinrich, Boser, & McCall, 1999). Within a single mechanism account of past tense verb production (McClelland & Patterson, 2002a, 2002b), irregular verbs fall into clusters that share similar transformations from their stem to past tense. No studies to our knowledge have explored whether strengthening irregular verb representations during rehabilitation can support production on untreated irregulars from the same irregular clusters.Aims: The aim of the current paper was to test the single mechanism claim that generalised improvement can be directed via irregular verb clusters in a Brocas aphasic participant (DS). We treated past tense verb production in sentences by using a mapping therapy, with the aim of maximising

Previous research has found that agrammatic Broca aphasic patients have particular difficulty using determiners like a and the for the purposes of sentence comprehension. In this study, we test whether or not such difficulty extends to the level where lexical subcategories are distinguished by these articles. The absence or presence of a determiner distinguishes proper from common nouns (e.g., ROSE vs. A ROSE), and mass from count nouns (e.g., GLASS vs. A GLASS). Groups of agrammatic Broca and fluent aphasic subjects were required to point to one of two pictures in response to a sentence such as Point to the picture of rose or Point to the picture of a rose. Sentences were presented in either printed or spoken form. Results indicated that for the agrammatic Broca patients, printed presentation yielded significant improvement over spoken presentation only for the proper noun/common noun distinction. Performance was significantly poorer for the mass noun/count noun distinction as ...
This study examined the outcomes of group and individual treatment using copy and recall treatment (CART) with four individuals with chronic severe Brocas aphasia. Target words were functional words generated by the participant with the assistance of his or her spouse and clinician. In the individual sessions, each participant worked with a clinician directly on writing the target words, reviewed homework with the clinician, and practiced the target words in conversation. Group therapy provided an opportunity to use these skills in a structured conversational setting with several communication partners. In the final phase of therapy, the participants interacted with unfamiliar communication partners. All four participants showed improvement, although, not surprisingly, they had more difficulties communicating with the unfamiliar partners in the final phase. This study supports the idea that (a) writing may be a viable mode of communication for individuals with severe aphasia, for whom spoken ...

What I failed to mention is that my moms biopsy wasnt a simple needle biopsy, they did another full blown craniotomy with the thought being if the cancer was back, the neurosurgeon would place chemotherapy wafers directly into her brain. He didnt have to do that, but he did remove the scar tissue. The fact is, when someone cuts into your brain, more likely than not, you will come out with deficits. My mom had quite a few deficits going in (she suffers from expressive aphasia). Her recovery following this last surgery has been slow, but I think she is close to being back to where she was before this recent surgery. Shes been in the neuro-rehab unit of the hospital since July 3rd. She had another surgery on Tuesday to have a shunt ...
Ictal asystole (IA) is a rare phenomenon in patients with seizures with an incidence of 0.27-0.4% and has been proposed as a possible mechanism of sudden unexpected death in epilepsy patients (SUDEP). We present a case of a 53-year-old woman who initially presented with episodes of expressive aphasia and was treated with antiepileptic drugs (AEDs). While on therapy she experienced episodes of syncope. During her hospitalization for tapering of AEDs and 24-hour EEG monitoring, the patient developed a seizure followed by sinus bradycardia and an 18-second sinus pause, resulting in loss of consciousness and slowing of cerebral activity ...
In our study, we assessed the reproducibility (test-retest reliability) of activations in the Broca area and the left insula for an object naming and a combined naming/noun generation fMRI paradigm. Both tasks are often used in fMRI for the localization of language functions, and naming is the standard task in IOM. The aim of our study was to explore the reproducibility of activations in the Broca area and the insula within a clinical framework, in which fMRI data complement IOM or are to be validated with IOM. The choice of the stimuli sets is critical in this situation: the patient has to be familiar with the stimuli used in the operating room to avoid uncertainties with respect to stimulation results and, not less important, to reduce psychologic distress for the patient. We thus used the same stimulus sets during all 3 of the measurements, accepting the potential occurrence of priming effects.. Random-effects analysis for the naming condition did not reveal activation of the Broca area or of ...
The proper names and names of profession on these seals do not supply sufficient material for successful decipherment. It is not possible to separate word and sign groups; the declensions and verb inflections cannot be detected here, and the pronouns are entirely absent. Until longer inscriptions of a literary and historical character, are discovered, not much advancement in the interpretation can be expected. A good many important facts can be determined, however, to clear the ground for more satisfactory research. In the first place this script is in no way even remotely connected with either Sumerian or proto-Elamitic signs. I have compared some of these signs with some of these scripts. For the references to the Sumerian pictographs, or the earliest forms of the Sumerian signs, I have referred the readers to the numbers of the REC (Thureau-Dangin, Recherches sur l Origine de lEcriture Cuneiforme), and for the proto-Elamitic signs to Professor Scheils Textes de Compatibilite ...
In a study by Milberg, Blumstein, and Dworetzky (1987), normal control subjects and Wernickes and Brocas aphasics performed a lexical decision task on the third element of auditorily presented triplets of words with either a word or a nonword as target. In three of the four types of word triplets, the first and the third words were related to one or both meanings of the second word, which was semantically ambiguous. The fourth type of word triplet consisted of three unrelated, unambiguous words, functioning as baseline. Milberg et al. (1987) claim that the results for their control subjects are similar to those reported by Schvaneveldt, Meyer, and Beckers original study (1976) with the same prime types, and so interpret these as evidence for a selective lexical access of the different meanings of ambiguous words. It is argued here that Milberg et al. only partially replicate the Schvaneveldt et al. results. Moreover, the results of Milberg et al. are not fully in line with the selective ...

A type of non-fluent aphasia is Brocas aphasia. People with Brocas aphasia have damage to the frontal lobe of the brain. They frequently speak in short phrases that make sense but are produced with great effort. They often omit small words such as is, and, and the. For example, a person with Brocas aphasia may say, Walk dog, meaning, I will take the dog for a walk, or book book two table, for There are two books on the table. People with Brocas aphasia typically understand the speech of others fairly well. Because of this, they are often aware of their difficulties and can become easily frustrated. People with Brocas aphasia often have right-sided weakness or paralysis of the arm and leg because the frontal lobe is also important for motor movements.. ReplyDelete ...

Although commonly interpreted as a marker of episodic memory during neuropsychological exams, relatively little is known regarding the neurobehavior of total learning immediate recall scores. Medial temporal lobes are clearly associated with delayed recall performances, yet immediate recall may necessitate networks beyond traditional episodic memory. We aimed to operationalize cognitive and neuroanatomic correlates of total immediate recall in several aging syndromes. Demographically-matched neurologically normal adults (n=91), individuals with Alzheimers disease (n=566), logopenic variant primary progressive aphasia (PPA) (n=34), behavioral variant frontotemporal dementia (n=97), semantic variant PPA (n=71), or nonfluent/agrammatic variant PPA (n=39) completed a neurocognitive battery, including the CVLT-Short Form trials 1-4 Total Immediate Recall; a majority subset also completed a brain MRI ...
This randomized clinical trial evaluated the feasibility of targeted epidural cortical stimulation delivered concurrently with speech-language therapy (SLT) in four subjects with chronic Brocas aphasia. Four matched controls received identical SLT without stimulation. Investigational subjects showed a mean WAB-AQ change of 8.0 points immediately post-therapy and at 6-week follow-up, and 12.3 points at 12-week follow-up. The control groups mean WAB-AQ change was 4.6, 5.5, and 3.6 points, respectively. Similar patterns of change were noted on the Communicative Effectiveness Index. fMRI changes suggested differential reorganization. Cortical stimulation in combination with intensive SLT may enhance language rehabilitation for chronic Brocas aphasia.. ...

We report a 69-year-old left-handed woman with non-fluent jargon aphasia due to lesions in the right frontoparietal area. Features of her speech included non-fluent meaningless sequences of syllables, i. e., phonetic jargon, which was obvious in all the tasks including spontaneous speech, repetition, naming and reading. Her utterance was sparse, but not effortful or anarthric. She understood most of spoken single words, but was confused by complex sentences. Brain CTs revealed acute lesions affecting the inferior and middle frontal gyri, insular cortex, precentral and postcentral gyri, and a part of the angular gyrus in the right hemisphere. Old ...
I found this article very interesting. It discussed how certain people suffering from aphasia are able to sing songs that are familiar to them, and how music can help in aphasia recovery. There were three experiments performed. In experiment one, each subject was asked to complete the words to familiar songs which they identified as having heard before prior to the experiment, both with and without the melodies. In experiment two, each subject listened to twenty unfamiliar songs with randomly assigned syntactic phrases and the subjects were asked to repeat the phrases with and without the melodies. In the third experiment, each subject listened to a simple melody. The melody was the combined with 32 excerpts from the unfamiliar songs in experiment two, then the excerpts were asked to be sung and spoken. ...
PURPOSE: The purpose of this 4-year fMRI research is to study brain reorganization for language in patients with left hemisphere (LH) stroke who have chronic nonfluent aphasia. This fMRI research is fundamental and critical to the PIs NIH RO1 grant, Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) to Improve Speech in nonfluent aphasia, which was recently renewed for 5 years, 2006-11. There is no overlap in the studies. The NIH grant provides the TMS (real and sham). This VA grant provides 4 different fMRI tasks performed pre- and post- a series of TMS treatments (real and sham) - Overt Naming fMRI; Overt Propositional Speech fMRI; and Nonverbal Semantic Decision tasks for Nouns, and for Actions.. The investigators have observed that application of TMS to an anterior portion of right (R) Brocas homologue (pars triangularis, PTr), results in significantly improved picture naming ability at 2 and 8 Mo. after the last (10th) TMS treatment, in aphasia patients who began TMS at 5-11 years poststroke. Also, ...

Abstract: The relationship between recursive sentence embedding and theory-of-mind (ToM) inference is investigated in three persons with Brocas aphasia, two persons with Wernickes aphasia, and six persons with mild and moderate Alzheimers disease (AD). We asked questions of four types about photographs of various real-life situations. Type 4 questions asked participants about intentions, thoughts, or utterances of the characters in the pictures (What may X be thinking/asking Y to do?). The expected answers typically involved subordinate clauses introduced by conjunctions or direct quotations of the characters utterances. Brocas aphasics did not produce answers with recursive sentence embedding. Rather, they projected themselves into the characters mental states and gave direct answers in the first person singular, with relevant ToM content. We call such replies situative statements. Where the question concerned the mental state of the character but did not require an answer with ...
The severity and scope of the problems depend on the extent of damage and the area of the brain affected. Some people may comprehend what others speak relatively well but struggle to find words to speak. Other people may speak more clearly than they can write. Your doctor may refer to one of three broad categories of aphasia nonfluent, fluent and global that describes what region of the brain was damaged and how communication is usually affected. The two primary language networks for most people are located in the brains left hemisphere.. Nonfluent aphasia. Damage to the language network near the left frontal area of the brain usually results in Broca aphasia. Its also called nonfluent aphasia. People with this disorder struggle to get words out, speak in very short sentences and leave out words. A person might say, Want food or Walk park today. Although the sentences arent complete, a listener can usually decipher the meaning. A person with Broca aphasia may comprehend what other people ...

Mixed Transcortical Aphasia is a type of aphasia in which repetition is the primary language ability that is present. It is an uncommon type of aphasia.
As it happens, Cynthia Thompson and Miseon Lee recently published just such a replication (well, they published it in 2009, but one doesnt always hear about papers right away). Its a nice study with 5 Brocas aphasics, published in the Journal of Neurolinguistics. They tested both sentence comprehension and sentence production, finding that while passive sentences were harder overall, experiencer-subject verbs (like/hate/fear) were easier in the active form and experiencer-object verbs (delight/anger/frighten) were easier in the passive form. This effect was much more pronounced in sentence production than comprehension (in the latter case, it was not strictly significant), most likely because comprehension is easier ...

We defined the neuropsychological and imaging features of the logopenic variant of PPA that in our experience represents 30% of all PPA cases. Our results suggested that the core cognitive deficit in LPA was a phonological loop disorder. Consistently, the imaging investigation showed involvement of GM and WM in the left posterior temporal and inferior parietal regions.. LPA is characterized by a decreased rate of spontaneous language production with frequent halts due to word-finding pauses. Phonemic paraphasias are common, but motor speech and grammar are spared. This pattern of language production is different from the fast output typical of early SemD patients, who usually fill word-finding pauses with circumlocutions and filler words. It is also distinct from the production deficit typical of PNFA, in which articulation deficits and agrammatism predominate.22 LPA patients, therefore, show a pattern of intermediate fluency distinct from the fluent SemDs and the nonfluent PNFAs, raising the ...
Limb-shaking transient ischemic attacks were first described in the medical literature in 1962 by Fisher. 1 Nonetheless, individuals presenting with LSTIAs remain a diagnostic challenge because the phenomena is rare and may be difficult to differentiate from focal motor seizures. A careful description of the shaking distinguishes the ischemic etiology of LSTIAs from a true Jacksonian March. Furthermore, onset upon standing, with exercise, or hyperventilation suggests LSTIA. 3,4 Presumably, the underlying mechanism of LSTIA involves cerebral ischemia, but the electrophysiological and/or neural circuits involved have yet to be elucidated. It has been argued that selective impairment of inhibitory networks with subsequent release of motor activity may be involved, or that cerebral ischemia itself in the proper context may result in direct transient neuronal excitability. 5,6. Our patient presented with classic manifestations of LSTIAs and experienced an episode of expressive aphasia consistent with ...
Scenario: This electrocardiographic (ECG) rhythm strip was obtained from a 74-year-old man who arrived at the emergency department (ED) with expressive aphasia and right-sided weakness. Consistent with a transient ischemic attack (TIA), his symptoms lasted 30 minutes and had resolved just prior to hospital arrival. He had experienced similar episodes in the past month. A recent ultrasound estimated a 70% stenosis of the left internal carotid artery (LICA). A computed tomography angiogram upon ED arrival confirmed a 90% stenosis in the LICA and severe stenosis bilaterally in his vertebral arteries. He has a history of hyperlipidemia, type II diabetes, and coronary artery bypass surgery 3 years ago. During the recording of this cardiac rhythm, he was alert, oriented and vital signs remained within normal limits.. ...
I have been sick since suffering a blackout in my office in 1994.

Similar cortical activations during the experience and observation of touch suggest the presence of a tactile mirroring system. However, the specificity of observation-related activity - i.e., whether observation excites the same representations as experience of that specific tactile stimulation - is still to be established. Furthermore, central mu rhythms are attenuated during the experience and observation of touch, and also during action observation and execution, making it unclear whether they index processing of predominantly tactile or motor features of observed actions. The present study used an electroencephalography (EEG) cross-modal repetition paradigm to assess the relative tactile and motor specificity of mu attenuation during action observation. Two experiments were carried out during which participants executed and observed actions in alternation, and the repetition of either tactile or motor features of the actions were manipulated. The mu signal over central electrodes varied as a
The results of this study were quite different from those obtained from native speakers in that the native speakers were most attentive to verb type whereas participants of this study were more affected by argument structure pattern of the structure.. One may argue that the reason for the participants preference for argument structure pattern of the structure over verb type may be that the students who took part in this study were all majoring in translation and teaching; and as such may through the linguistics courses they had previously taken become aware of the importance of argument structure patterns to sentence making. Nevertheless, the participants preference for argument structure patterns so overwhelmingly outperformed their preference for verb type that this researcher is led to believe that there might be other factors at play.. Hence, for future research studies this researcher proposes the same task to be administered to other target populations, say, freshmen (i.e. more target ...

We encounter many roadblocks every day with this mysterious being that is PDD. One of them is the most vital: communication. Now, dont get me wrong; Ethan has made vast improvements since starting speech therapy about five months ago. But for a long time there, the only way he knew to communicate with us was by hitting, shrieking, kicking, throwing things, you name it. Oh, he tried to talk. We tried to help him talk, but he would get so frustrated it usually ended in tears - for Ethan and me, sometimes. He also understood everything we said and could follow directions (e.g. Go throw your plate away, then go get your shoes from your room and bring them to Mommy.), which I think made (makes) it all the worse for him. How would you feel if you could understand what everyone was saying to you, but you were unable to respond? Id imagine thats how aphasia patients feel after suffering a stroke that damages the language center of the brain. Sort of like when the doctor asks you the name of the ...

The primary aim of this thesis is to map the syntactic and semantic nature, and the frequency of the Double Passive in Swedish. The results showed that the Double Passive is a control construction where the internal argument (OBJ) of the embedded verb is raised to subject of the s-passive matrix verb, and the verb of the infinitival complement co-occurs as an s-passive infinitive. In the thesis Lexical functional grammar (LFG) is used as a model for semantic and syntactic analysis. The analysis showed that when the AGENT in a Double Passive construction is suppressed, it creates an argument structure that triggers an equi verb to occur as a raising verb (cf. Ørsnes 2006:404). Overt agents within constructions containing the Double Passive showed an even lower frequency than the low frequencies documented in previous research of passive constructions by Silén (1997) and Laanemets (2010). The lower frequency is partly a result of the fact that agents in a Double Passive construction are ...
