Recovery of Sentence Production Processes Following Language Treatment in Aphasia: Evidence from Eyetracking
Eyetracking findings indicate that treatment improves sentence production and results in the emergence of normal-like cognitive processes associated with successful sentence production, including structural planning.
Recovery of Online Sentence Processing in Aphasia: Eye Movement Changes Resulting From Treatment of Underlying Forms.
Findings suggest that treatment focused on improving sentence production and comprehension supports the emergence of more normal-like sentence comprehension processes.
What Eye Movement Reveals Concerning Age-Related Dissociation in Syntactic Prediction: Evidence From a Verb-Final Language.
PURPOSE How older adults engage in predictive processing compared to young adults during sentence processing has been a controversial issue in psycholinguistic research. This study investigated
A Computational Evaluation of Two Models of Retrieval Processes in Sentence Processing in Aphasia
Model comparisons using Bayes factors show that, assuming an activation-based model, intermittent deficiencies may be the best explanation for the cause of impairments in IWAs, although slowed syntax and lexical delayed access may also play a role.
Thematic Integration Impairments in Primary Progressive Aphasia: Evidence From Eye-Tracking
Examination of on-line comprehension of object-relative and subject-relative clauses in healthy controls and individuals with agrammatic and logopenic PPA using eye-tracking argues that these results are consistent with the hypothesis that Agrammatic comprehension deficits reflect impaired thematic integration.

Findings provide compelling evidence that treatment focused on principles of neuroplasticity promotes neurocognitive recovery in chronic agrammatic aphasia and addresses both behavioral and brain variables related to successful treatment outcomes.
The cognitive neural mechanisms of verb argument structure complexity processing
: Verb argument structure complexity is manifested in four aspects: the number of arguments, the selection mode of arguments subcategorization, the assignment mode of θ-roles and the mapping of

Tracking passive sentence comprehension in agrammatic aphasia
Sentence comprehension and morphological cues in aphasia: What eye-tracking reveals about integration and prediction
Test-retest reliability of eye tracking in the visual world paradigm for the study of real-time spoken word recognition.
The VWP is stable enough (with some caveats) to serve as an individual measure and suggested guidelines for future use of the paradigm and for areas of improvement in both methodology and analysis are suggested.
The Auditory Comprehension of Wh-Questions in Aphasia: Support for the Intervener Hypothesis.
The results provide support for the intervener hypothesis, which states that sentence constructions that contain an intervener between a displaced noun phrase and its gap site result in a significant processing disadvantage relative to other constructions.
Reliability and validity of the computerized Revised Token Test: comparison of reading and listening versions in persons with and without aphasia.
All 4 versions of the Revised Token Test were reliable, concurrently valid, and sensitive to similar linguistic processing difficulties in people with aphasia and healthy controls.
What goes wrong during passive sentence production in agrammatic aphasia: An eyetracking study
The deficit in passive sentence production does not solely arise from a morphological deficit, rather it stems, at least in part, from a structural level impairment.
Pronominal Resolution and Gap Filling in Agrammatic Aphasia: Evidence from Eye Movements
Findings indicate that aberrant lexical integration, rather than representational deficits or generally slowed processing, may underlie agrammatic aphasic listener’s comprehension failure.
