Abstract Anomia is a complex, commonly occurring symptom of aphasia with different underlying causes. A number of behavioral approaches to rehabilitation of anomia have been described. Some are restitutive in nature and attempt to reactivate lexical-semantic or phonological representations to improve word retrieval. Others are intended to reorganize language functions by engaging alternative cognitive systems to mediate word retrieval or by exploiting residual abilities to circumvent the… Expand

Topics from this paper

Less is more: neural mechanisms underlying anomia treatment in chronic aphasic patients
TLDR
It is reported that immediate and long-term facilitation of naming rely on common neural networks, while whole words and partial cues promote naming via different networks. Expand
Extrasylvian aphasias
Thumbnail Language disturbances observed in cases of damage outside of the “brain language area” are known as extrasylvian or transcortical aphasia. Preserved language repetition is itsExpand
The treatment of anomia in Sesotho: A case for parametric aphasiology
TLDR
An intervention study with two Sesotho-speaking individuals with anomia suggested a positive response to the techniques of true phonemic cueing and prosodic cueing, whereas initial phonemic cues had no impact, which supports the need for a parametrically informed approach to aphasia therapy. Expand
A case series comparison of semantically focused vs. phonologically focused cued naming treatment in aphasia

TLDR
Whether or not semantic or phonological therapy differentially impacts on outcomes for people with a range of different aphasic profiles when given both therapies is elucidated. Expand
Neural correlates of phonological and semantic-based anomia treatment in aphasia
TLDR
Changes in neural recruitment associated with phonologic and semantic-based naming treatments are compared and imply that cortical areas not traditionally related to language processing may support anomia recovery in some patients with chronic aphasia. Expand
The nature of facilitation and interference in the multilingual language system: insights from treatment in a case of trilingual aphasia
TLDR
The results showed that while the participant improved on trained items, she did not show within- or cross-language generalization, and error patterns revealed a substantial increase of interference of the currently trained language into the nontrained language during each of the two treatment phases, which support the claim that language selection and control are components of overall cognitive control. Expand
Subjective experience of inner speech in aphasia: Preliminary behavioral relationships and neural correlates
TLDR
The preliminary results suggest that people with aphasia can often provide meaningful insights about their experience of anomia and that reports of sIS relate to specific lesion locations and language deficits. Expand
Typicality Treatment for Naming Deficits in Aphasia: Why Does It Work?
Abstract Purpose: The present paper provides a review of a recent treatment approach for alleviating naming deficits in patients with aphasia. This is an example of a treatment that is theoreticall...
Aphasia Rehabilitation of Auditory Word Comprehension-Impaired Stroke Patients
Auditory word comprehension is the process through which spoken language is heard, interpreted and understood. This ability is impaired when there is damage to specific language areas in brain as aExpand
Comparing the effects of clinician and caregiver-administered lexical retrieval training for progressive anomia
TLDR
This study is the first to document that caregiver-administered speech and language intervention can have positive outcomes when paired with training by a clinician. Expand

Pharmacotherapy for aphasia
TLDR
This work attempted to restore speech fluency in a patient with long-standing transcortical motor aphasia by treating his symptoms of hesitancy and impaired initiation of speech with bromocriptine. Expand
Cognitive Neuropsychological Analysis and Neuroanatomic Correlates in a Case of Acute Anomia
TLDR
An analysis of lexical processing performed in a patient with the acute onset of an isolated anomia suggests that output from the semantic system was impaired, and proposes that this pattern represents an impairment that arises late in semantic processing prior to accessing mode-specific verbal and graphemic output lexicons.

Publisher Summary This chapter discusses anomia and outlines involved neuroanatomical structures and pathways. Anatomical-clinical correlations for the varieties of anomia described are suggested andExpand
Nonoptic aphasia
TLDR
The results support previous theories that there are two routes to visual naming, one via the semantic system and one directly from the internal visual representation to the lexicon and suggest that it is the earliest language deficit in some patients with AD. Expand
