9781572305816: Aphasia and Language: Theory to Practice

Aphasia, a devastating disorder resulting from stroke, degenerative disease, or traumatic brain injury, profoundly affects the individual's ability to use and understand language. This groundbreaking work brings together an array of leading scientist-practitioners to review what is known about aphasia and to relate current knowledge to treatment. Integrating traditional linguistic formulations with new insights derived from cognitive neuroscience, the volume explores the neuropsychological bases of both normal and pathologic language. Chapters address the major domains of language impairment in aphasia and also consider such related disorders as apraxia of speech, alexia, agraphia, and limb apraxia. Major principles of rehabilitation are described and evaluated, and the treatment literature is reviewed in depth. Throughout, the volume reflects a sophisticated understanding of brain structure and function based on new developments in connectionist modeling and functional neuroimaging.

From the Back Cover:

"This book is expansive in concept and realization. The authors have undertaken an important and largely ignored task--that of directly connecting theory to practice in relation to a variety of problems that comprise the spectrum of aphasia. For many scientists and clinicians, this book will be simply invaluable. It serves as a bridge linking theoretical aspects of aphasia in principled and helpful ways." Audrey Holland, PhD, Department of Speech and Hearing Science, University of Arizona
