In particular, it was evaluated if feature sharedness composition explains the superordinate deficits observed in these patients. For this purpose we studied 6 stroke aphasia patients and 12 matched controls using a sentence verification task in which feature sharedness (more vs. less shared) and concept… CONTINUE READING
