The anatomical correlates of persistent deficits in sentence repetition were studied in a group of 32 right‐handed patients with fluent aphasia caused by left hemisphere ischemic stroke. Patients whose ability to repeat remained impaired by 6 month after onset almost withoutexveption had damage to Wernicke's area had impaired repetition 6 months after onset. The most consistent lesion correlating with chronic impairment of repetition, therefore, was one destroying parts or all of Wernicke's… Expand
