Ideational Gestures and Speech in Brain-Damaged Subjects.
Hadar, U.; Burstein, A.; Krauss, R.; Soroker, N.
Language and Cognitive Processes, v13 n1 p59-76 Feb 1998
Compares speech-related (coverbal) gestures in brain-damaged patients (aphasics and visuo-spatial deficits) and in matched controls. Results suggest ideational gestures probably facilitate word retrieval and reflect transfer of information between propositional and non-propositional representations during message construction, and that conceptual and linguistics representations should be re-encoded in a visuo-spatial format to produce ideational gestures.
