Little is known about the neural counterparts of speech therapy in aphasic patients. An fMRI experiment was performed before and after a specific and intensive speech output therapy in RC, a patient with long-lasting speech output deficit following a left-sided ischemic lesion. Overt picture naming and picture/word rhyming were used as activation tasks in RC and 6 control subjects.
