Melodic Intonation Therapy is a well-known method exploring the verbal encoding of aphasics but within this study, it was used to investigate the verbal decoding (the auditory comprehension). Two separate groups, 240 cases each, were investigated, the former with MIT and the latter with other therapy methods. Each group included three subgroups according to the three frequent types of aphasia (Wernicke, Broca and Anomia). The method of semantic fields was associated to treat the second group… 
Melodic intonation therapy in Persian aphasic patients
Melodic intonation therapy (MIT) can be adapted for Persian aphasic patients and administered with measurable positive results after 15 sessions of treatment, and might be considered as a method for the rehabilitation of selected non-fluent Persian-speaking patients.
The Effectiveness of Melodic Intonation Therapy for Chinese Speakers with Non-fluent Aphasia: A Pilot Study
Despite earlier positive findings, there is a paucity of research on the effectiveness of Melodic Intonation Therapy on the Chinese speaking populations. Four Chinese speaking persons with mild
Improved Neural Processing Efficiency in a Chronic Aphasia Patient Following Melodic Intonation Therapy: A Neuropsychological and Functional MRI Study
The results suggest that the aphasic symptoms of a patient with severe chronic non-fluent aphasia were improved by increased neural processing efficiency and a concomitant decrease in cognitive load.
Language lateralisation after Melodic Intonation Therapy: an fMRI study in subacute and chronic aphasia
Data for the subacute patients provide some support for the classical notion that MIT promotes recruitment of RH structures for language processing, however, the contrasting activation patterns in chronic participants before as well as after treatment suggest that reorganisation of language after MIT occurs in interaction with a dynamic recovery process after stroke.
Effectiveness of Melodic Intonation Therapy in Chinese Mandarin on Non-fluent Aphasia in Patients After Stroke: A Randomized Control Trial
Compared with speech therapy, MIT based on music therapy is a more effective musical activity and is effective and valuable for the recovery of speech function in patients with non-fluent aphasia.
Music-based interventions for aphasia could act through a motor-speech mechanism: a systematic review and case–control analysis of published individual participant data
ABSTRACT Background: Melodic Intonation Therapy, a music-based intervention for the recovery of oral language production in aphasia, has been shown to be particularly effective in patients with
Music in the treatment of neurological language and speech disorders: A systematic review
Although treatment outcomes were reported as positive in all of the 15 reviewed studies, caution should be used relative to conclusions about the effectiveness of treatments that incorporate components of music with neurologically impaired individuals.
Music-Induced Speech and Language Rehabilitation
This chapter examines the connection between music and speech, and points out areas of intersection relative to the mechanisms guiding their practice, application, and execution. This work also
