Enhancement of verb retrieval: Neuromodulation, repetition priming, and aphasia rehabilitation
There is a need to increase the efficacy and efficiency of aphasia rehabilitation protocols. In order to do this, we may rely on knowledge about how the language system may be changed by experience,
Working Memory and Aphasia
Aphasia is traditionally considered to be an acquired language impairment, due to a focal (usually left-lateralized) brain lesion. However, during the last decades, there has been mounting evidence
Brain regions underlying repetition and auditory-verbal short-term memory deficits in aphasia: Evidence from voxel-based lesion symptom mapping
Background: A deficit in the ability to repeat auditory-verbal information is common among individuals with aphasia. The neural basis of this deficit has traditionally been attributed to the
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.
A proposed reinterpretation and reclassification of aphasic syndromes
A new classification of aphasic syndromes is proposed: primary (or “central”) aphasias (Wernicke's aphasia—three subtypes—and Broca aphasIA); secondary (or "peripheral’) aahsias (conduction aphasian and supplementary motor area aphasies); and dysexecutive aphasie, are distinguished.
Aphasiology Phonological short term memory in conduction aphasia
Background: Within cognitive neuropsychological models, conduction aphasia has been conceptualized as a phonological buffer deficit. It may affect the output buffer, the input buffer, or both. The

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
The role of inferior parietal and inferior frontal cortex in working memory.
Testing two groups of patients chosen on the basis of their relatively focal lesions in the inferior parietal (IP) cortex or inferior frontal (IF) cortex provides evidence of the roles of IP and IF cortex in separable working memory processes.
Recovery in Deep Dysphasia: Evidence for a Relation between Auditory–Verbal STM Capacity and Lexical Errors in Repetition
In a series of computer simulation and empirical studies, it is shown that NC's repetition performance can be accounted for by varying two parameters of an interactive activation model of repetition adapted from Dell and O'Seaghdha's (1991) model of production: decay rate and temporal interval.

Language Processing and Working Memory: Neuropsychological Evidence for Separate Phonological and Semantic Capacities
Abstract The short-term memory and sentence-processing abilities of two brain-damaged patients were investigated. Although both patients showed similar reductions in span, one patient showed worse
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
Two routes to repetition: Evidence from a case of ‘deep dysphasia’
Her ability to repeat phrases was far better than could be expected from her single word repetition, suggesting that she uses for repetition tasks, a process that engages syntactic and semantic processes that is independent of a non-semantic route from auditory input to articulatory output.
