Rapid Word Identification in Pure Alexia Is Lexical but Not Semantic
Following the notion that patients with pure alexia have access to two distinct reading strategies-letter-by-letter reading and semantic reading-a training program was devised to facilitate readingExpand

Successful blending in a phonological reading treatment for deep alexia
Background: Patients with deep alexia have great difficulty reading pseudowords, indicating an impairment in phonological reading. One method that has been used in attempting to retrain phonologicExpand

Multiple Oral Re-reading treatment for alexia: The parts may be greater than the whole
This study examines the reasons for the success of Multiple Oral Re-reading (MOR; Moyer, 1979), a non-invasive, easily administered alexia treatment that has been reported in the literature and isExpand

Can Treatment for Pure Alexia Improve Letter-by-Letter Reading Speed without Sacrificing Accuracy?
An experimental treatment study designed to improve both the accuracy and the speed of reading was administered to a patient with pure alexia and impaired letter naming. The study focused on the useExpand

Neural Mechanisms Underlying Learning Following Semantic Mediation Treatment in a Case of Phonologic Alexia
Patients with phonologic alexia can be trained to read semantically impoverished words (e.g., functors) by pairing them with phonologically-related semantically rich words (e.g, nouns). WhatExpand

The role of level of representation in the use of paired associate learning for rehabilitation of alexia
Patients with phonological alexia (difficulty reading pseudowords) frequently have concomitant difficulty reading functor words and verbs compared with concrete nouns. The current study compares twoExpand

Overt use of a tactile/kinaesthetic strategy shifts to covert processing in rehabilitation of letter-by-letter reading
Background: Letter-by-letter readers identify each letter of the word they are reading serially in left to right order before recognising the word. When their letter naming is also impaired,Expand

Rationale and efficacy of a tactile—kinaesthetic treatment for alexia
Abstract Patients with pure alexia typically read words by first naming each letter of the word, either aloud or silently. These patients do not show signs of phonological alexia (poor pseudoword andExpand

Modality-specific phonological alexia
Abstract Following a stroke, patient TL presented with a pure alexia that also displayed the features of phonological alexia (poor pseudoword reading, part-of-speech effect). This pattern was absent,Expand
