Lesions responsible for phonological paraphasia and auditory–verbal short-term memory disturbances in aphasia
The findings suggest that the cause of phonological paraphasia is not auditory–verbal STM disturbances but non-conduction of a large amount of information through underlying white matter le-sions, and that two auditory– verbal STM storage sites exist in the human brain.
The mental apparatus in left MCA infarction: Relational language deficit and changes to ego function in conduction aphasia
This clinical report explores changes to the mental apparatus of a patient presenting with conduction aphasia (the first such case to be reported from a neuropsychoanalytic perspective), and briefly compares it with the changes observed in other types of aphasIA reported by Kaplan-Solms and Solms.
Cortical and fibre tract interrelations in conduction aphasia
First indications for an involvement of the left hemisphere in both short- and long-term integration of auditory information derived by examining patients with (conduction) aphasia are presented.
Corticobasal degeneration presenting with progressive conduction aphasia


Conduction aphasia-11 classic cases
Abstract Eleven cases of conduction aphasia derived from a survey of the literature of the classic period of German aphasiology are reviewed. They were published between 1885 and 1934. Only those
On the nature of conduction aphasia: A longitudinal case study
Abstract A longitudinal investigation is reported of an English-speaking conduction aphasic as an attempt to provide fresh insights into some unresolved issues pertaining to this syndrome. Data were
Conduction aphasia. A clinicopathological study.
Three patients with conduction aphasia are described; in addition to the distinctive language disorder, two of them had severe ideomotor apraxia while the other was entirely free ofApraxia, and a review of the literature would propose the following.
Behavioral analysis of the repetition deficit in conduction aphasia
A new at tempt a t a behavioral model of the repetition deficit is presented, which bears on the question of whether the causative deficit is causative and how to isolate a component of behavior.
Supra- and Infrasylvian Conduction Aphasia
Conduction aphasia is a heterogeneous syndrome anatomically and linguistically and performs less well in tests of naming, writing, and comprehension than the pure types.
Conduction aphasia, syntactic alexia, and the anatomy of syntactic comprehension.
Since Broca's aphasics and patients with conduction aphasia have lesions that may extend into the supramarginal gyrus, it is postulate that this area may be critical for comprehending syntax.
Phonological short-term store, phonological processing and sentence comprehension: A neuropsychological case study
Abstract Phonological processing and speech comprehension were investigated in a patient with left hemisphere damage and a grossly reduced auditory verbal span, attributed to a selective impairment
