Auditory Word Comprehension Impairment in Acute Stroke: Relative Contribution of Phonemic versus Semantic Factors
Rogalsky, Corianne; Pitz, Eleanor; Hillis, Argye E.; Hickok, Gregory
Brain and Language, v107 n2 p167-169 Nov 2008
Auditory word comprehension was assessed in a series of 289 acute left hemisphere stroke patients. Participants decided whether an auditorily presented word matched a picture. On different trials, words were presented with a matching picture, a semantic foil, or a phonemic foil. Participants had significantly more trouble with semantic foils across all levels of impairment. (Contains 2 figures.)
