Single Word Production in Nonfluent Progressive Aphasia
An experiment investigation of the spoken single word production of two patients with nonfluent progressive aphasia showed that the patients' access to appropriate phonology in reading was positively related to the degree of correlation between orthographic and phonological forms.
Phonological Buffer and Selective Deficits of Grammar, with Distinct Time Onsets, in a Patient with a Focal Degenerative Disorder
A patient with a focal degenerative disorder and very circumscribed neuropsychological deficits, the evolution of which was able to study over a lengthy period remains intact, even when he was virtually rendered mute, his ability to name objects on demand in writing remained intact.
Examining the facilitative effects of rhyme in a patient with output lexicon damage
A theory-driven treatment was designed to facilitate access to the impaired output lexicons of a 47-year-old woman with aphasia resulting from a left parietal haemorrhage. In the context of a
From Mimicry to Language: A Neuroanatomically Based Evolutionary Model of the Emergence of Vocal Language
According to this model, the role of the ADS in vocal control enabled early Homo (Hominans) to name objects using monosyllabic calls, and allowed children to learn their parents' calls by imitating their lip movements.
Phonological facilitation effects on naming latencies and viewing times during noun and verb naming in agrammatic and anomic aphasia
Consistent with lexically mediated PF in interactive models of lexical access, selective PF for different word categories in agrammatic and anomic groups suggest that phonological primes facilitate lexical selection via feedback activation, resulting in greater PF for more difficult lexical items.
Lexical access speed is significantly correlated with the return to professional activities after awake surgery for low-grade gliomas
The results show, for the first time, that naming speed is significantly correlated with a major criterion of quality of life: the return to professional activities.

The neurobiologic features suggested are suggested by reports linking disruption of brain stem cardiovascular control, cardiovascular reactivity in challenging tasks, and subclini-cal impairment of lung airways to dopamine abnormalities lateralized to the right hemisphere.
Progressive Anomia Revisited: Focal Degeneration Associated with Progranulin Gene Mutation
The case of Newton, who presented with a progressive circumscribed anomia in association with focal left hemisphere atrophy, exemplifies the heterogeneity of clinical expression of FTLD and contributes to understanding of primary progressive aphasia.


A case study of reproduction conduction aphasia I: Word production
Abstract We present data regarding word production and short-term auditory verbal memory in a patient, RL, who falls into the class of “reproduction conduction aphasia”. RL shows similar disturbances
The role of the (output) phonological buffer in reading, writing, and repetition
Recent efforts directed at understanding the nature of cognitive disorders have been guided by the assumption that the analysis and interpretation of cognitive impairments cannot proceed
