We investigated the semantic blocking effect in picture naming and word-picture matching for two nonfluent aphasic patients who show evidence of a deficit in inhibiting verbal representations (M.L. and B.Q), one fluent aphasic patient (K.V.), and neurologically intact control participants. In two picture-naming tasks (Experiments 1A and 1B), M.L. and B.Q, relative to controls, showed a greatly exaggerated semantic blocking effect in naming latencies that increased dramatically across repeated… CONTINUE READING
