Abstract Objectives This study assessed cognitive performance of subjects with aphasia during the acute stage of stroke and evaluated how such performance relates to recovery at 3 months. Materials & methods Patients with aphasia following a left hemisphere stroke were evaluated during the first (baseline) and the fourth-month post onset. Assessment comprised non-verbal tests of attention/processing speed (Symbol Search, Cancelation Task), executive functioning (Matrix Reasoning, Tower of Hanoi… Expand

The novel cognitive flexibility in aphasia therapy (CFAT): A combined treatment of aphasia and executive functions to improve communicative success
TLDR
This pilot study indicates that CFAT offers a novel opportunity to directly train cognitive flexibility in communicative settings and complements conventional therapy for optimal patient outcome. Expand
TESTE DE MEMÓRIA DOS 5 OBJECTOS (M5O): DESEMPENHO DE PARTICIPANTES COM AFASIA
TLDR
Performance in the aphasic group is lower than the controls but not influenced by the time post onset, aphasia severity and comprehension, which is an added value for the application of this test in this population. Expand
Effect of the Wii Sports Resort on the improvement in attention, processing speed and working memory in moderate stroke
TLDR
The results on attention, processing speed and working memory improved in both groups, however, according to the effect sizes, the intervention group achieved better results than the control group. Expand
Instances of trouble in aphasia and dementia: an analysis of trouble domain and interactional consequences
Language problems in dementia resemble the symptoms of aphasia in many respects. Persons with aphasia (PWA) and persons with dementia (PWD) present rather similar results on standardised language t...
The Effect of Second-Generation Antidepressant Treatment on the Memory of Patients With Major Depressive Disorder: A Meta-analysis Study With Structural Equation Models.
TLDR
The results suggest that selective serotonin reptake inhibitors and serotonine-noradrenaline reuptake inhibitors would bring about a substantial improvement in the memory of depressed patients, whereas other antidepressant classes would cause rather modest effects. Expand
THE EFFECT OF SECOND-GENERATION ANTIDEPRESSANT TREATMENT ON THE EXECUTIVE FUNCTIONS OF PATIENTS WITH MAJOR DEPRESSIVE DISORDER: A META-ANALYSIS STUDY WITH STRUCTURAL EQUATION MODELS
TLDR
The improvement of EF after pharmacological treatment is clinically relevant, but it is incomplete and the degree of improvement in these cognitive functions is strongly influenced by some clinical and demographic variables of patients with depression. Expand

Nonlinguistic Cognitive Impairment in Poststroke Aphasia
TLDR
Nonlinguistic cognitive impairments in the first year after stroke are common and associated with poor functional outcome and depression, especially in patients with persisting aphasia, who had lower cognitive domain scores, worse functional outcome, and were more often depressed than patients who had recovered from aphasIA. Expand
Dynamics of language reorganization after stroke.
TLDR
The data suggest that brain reorganization during language recovery proceeds in three phases: a strongly reduced activation of remaining left language areas in the acute phase is followed by an upregulation with recruitment of homologue language zones, which correlates with language improvement.

Predicting the outcome of anomia therapy for people with aphasia post CVA: Both language and cognitive status are key predictors
TLDR
Both cognitive and language (naming or phonological) skills were found to be independent predictors of therapy outcome and pre-treatment naming ability also predicted gain after the anomia therapy. Expand
Cognition and aphasia: a discussion and a study.
TLDR
A new study of the relation between linguistic and nonlinguistic skill in a group of individuals with aphasia finds no significant relationship was found and individual profiles of strengths and weaknesses were found. Expand
Cognitive performance in aphasia due to stroke: a systematic review
Abstract Introduction: Aphasia persists in about one third of the patients with left hemisphere stroke, yet it is not known if it enhances the risk of dementia, beyond what results from any focalExpand
The heterogeneity of verbal short-term memory impairment in aphasia
TLDR
These results disconfirm a strong version of the linguistic account ofverbal STM impairment in aphasia, by showing variable impairment to both item and serial order processing aspects of verbal STM. Expand
Long-term prognosis of aphasia after stroke
TLDR
The outcome of aphasia at 1 year after stroke can be predicted in the first week by the phonology score, the Barthel Index score, age, educational level and stroke subtype, with phonology being the strongest predictor. Expand
The 5 Objects Test: a novel, minimal-language, memory screening test
TLDR
The 5 Objects Test is a reliable and valid very brief screening test that is suitable for primary care and appropriate for persons with limited language use or from different linguistic backgrounds. Expand
The latest on functional imaging studies of aphasic stroke
TLDR
It is argued that clinical diagnosis and treatment requires a better understanding of the normal variability in functional anatomy and the many neuronal pathways that are available to sustain each type of language task. Expand
Improvement in Aphasia Scores After Stroke Is Well Predicted by Initial Severity
TLDR
There is a highly predictable relation between aphasia recovery and initial impairment, which is also proportional in nature and suggests that common mechanisms may govern reduction of poststroke neurologic impairment across different functional domains and that they could be the focus of therapeutic intervention.
