Synopsis: Arizona State University, Tempe. Text on the current thinking and practice on the treatment of aphasias, for speech-language pathologists and neurologists. 16 contributors, 15 U.S. DNLM: Aphasia.
From the Author: Experts in the areas of clinical research and in the delivery of clinical services are drawn together to share the very latest on aphasia and related neurogenic language disorders. In this edition we have condensed some chapters and added breadth to the areas of coverage. Additions include chapters on neurobiological aspects of recovery secondary to treatment. The concept that changes actually take place in brain and brain connections as a result of treatment is as exciting as any clinical research initiative of the last decade. Social and group models of intervention and rehabilitation are also awarded coverage in this edition, as is research on the remarkable capabilities and processes associated with the ever so human frontal cerebral lobes. We also have added a chapter on family, caregiver, and clinician resources with considerable emphasis on the technological advances and information resources available on the Internet and World Wide Web. These chapters are in addition to the previously covered (though in some cases by different authors) material on naming and word-retrieval problems; acquired dyslexia; acquired agraphias; Broca’s, Wernicke’s, conduction, transcortical, and global aphasia; dementia; right hemisphere syndrome; traumatic brain injury; and pragmatics of communication. This increase in coverage of issues on aphasia and neurogenic disorders of communication approaches the breadth of a handbook for clinicians and researchers and should serve as a valuable learning resource for speech-language pathologists, other rehabilitation specialists, physicians and associated health care personnel, health care reimbursers, and both undergraduate and graduate students interested in the fascinating, if sometimes challenging, world of human communication and cognition caused by brain damage.
