This paper is about syntactic processing in aphasia. Specifically, we present data concerning the ability of Broca's and Wernicke's aphasic patients to link moved constituents and empty elements in real time. We show that Wernicke's aphasic patients carry out this syntactic analysis in a normal fashion, but that Broca's aphasic patients do not. We discuss(More)
The status of semantic representations of nouns (concrete and abstract) and verbs (motion and non-motion) was investigated in patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD). Nouns and verbs have been argued to activate different neural substrates, given the selective difficulties reported for one or the other grammatical class in patients with focal lesions.(More)
Broca's aphasics performed a lexical decision task in a semantic priming experiment in which the proportion of related words was manipulated with a sufficiently long stimulus onset asynchrony for expectancy-based, strategic processing to operate. The control subjects showed the typical increase in semantic facilitation as relatedness proportion increased.(More)
Designing simulations for higher education requires planning. This chapter explores the use of a design process of an iterative model with frequent evaluation of the process to ensure strong design in blended and flexible learning. Two case studies are used to demonstrate how the ADDIE process is used in an iterative method to develop simulations to teach(More)
