In this study, the linguistic performance of 20 patients with acute conduction aphasia (CA) is described. CA presented as a relatively homogeneous aphasic syndrome characterized by a severe impairment of repetition and fluent expressive language functions with frequent phonemic paraphasias, repetitive self-corrections, word-finding difficulties, and paraphrasing. Language comprehension as assessed by tests of auditory and reading comprehension was only mildly impaired, whereas most patients… 
Linguistic and neuropsychological deficits in crossed conduction aphasia. Report of three cases
TLDR
Despite the location of the lesion in the right hemisphere, all patients displayed a combination of linguistic deficits typically found in conduction aphasia following analogous damage to the left hemisphere.
Dysgraphia in two forms of conduction aphasia
TLDR
It is argued that seemingly contradictory, unpredicted patterns in word level writing can be parsimoniously better explained, not by the parallel hypothesis but by current cognitive-neuropsychological models of writing.
Chapter 23 – Consciousness and Aphasia
Different language impairments allow us to investigate how much the use of language can influence the content of conscious awareness and therefore of thinking and reasoning. Pure anarthria (different
Conduction aphasia, sensory-motor integration, and phonological short-term memory – An aggregate analysis of lesion and fMRI data
TLDR
The region of maximal lesion overlap in a sample of 14 patients with conduction aphasia perfectly circumscribes area Spt, as defined in an aggregate fMRI analysis of 105 subjects performing a phonological working memory task.
Consciousness and Aphasia
Different language impairments allow us to investigate how much the use of language can influence the content of conscious awareness and therefore of thinking and reasoning. Pure anarthria (different
A multimodal mapping study of conduction aphasia with impaired repetition and spared reading aloud
TLDR
It is argued that this phonological deficit should be interpreted as a disorder of the feedback system, in particular of the auditory and somatosensory target maps, which are assumed to be located along the Spt area.
Lesions responsible for phonological paraphasia and auditory–verbal short-term memory disturbances in aphasia
Fluent speech with phonological paraphasia is characteristic of conduction aphasia and Wernicke's aphasia. Phonological para-phasia is characterized by speech sound errors that still convey the
The mental apparatus in left MCA infarction: Relational language deficit and changes to ego function in conduction aphasia
TLDR
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
Background: The syndrome of conduction aphasia is an umbrella term to label clinically heterogeneous language disorders that all include a deficit of repetition due to impaired immediate memory or,
Corticobasal degeneration presenting with progressive conduction aphasia
TLDR
It is speculated that progressive conduction aphasia may be a feature of CBD presenting with PPA, and Neuropathological findings demonstrated the most severe atrophy in the left superior temporal gyrus and Gallyas-Braak-positive or phosphorylated tau-immunoreactive cytoskeletal structures, which were consistent with corticobasal degeneration (CBD).

TLDR
It is concluded that the best explanation for the disorder of patients with repetition deficit but without significant speech output problems is the hypothesis that repetition ability is compromised by a pathological limitation of auditory-verbal short-term memory.

Auditory-verbal short-term memory impairment and conduction aphasia
TLDR
It is shown that a short-term memory component is present in many patients previously classified as conduction aphasics, and an explanation of the span deficit in terms of auditory-verbal short- term memory is preferred to hypotheses involving disconnections or damage to order retention systems.

From the analysis of Kana writings it is hypothesized that the in ability to establish a stable and distinct acoustic word image is responsible for this basic expressive difficulty leading to both paraphasic and paragraphic errors.

TLDR
Conduction aphasia is a heterogeneous syndrome anatomically and linguistically and performs less well in tests of naming, writing, and comprehension than the pure types.

TLDR
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.
Immediate memory for word lists and sentences in a patient with deficient auditory short-term memory
TLDR
This study of a patient with a mild conduction aphasia again traces impaired repetition to faulty auditory short-term memory and shows a remarkable ability to paraphrase sentences he could not repeat verbatim, which has implications for the role of auditory memory in language comprehension.
