Selective Aphasias

  • Ivar Reinvang
Part of the Applied Psycholinguistics and Communication Disorders book series (APCD)


Under this heading is usually discussed a varied set of conditions that have the common feature of only affecting verbal performance in a given modality (auditory or visual, oral or graphic) while the general level of language functioning is unimpaired. The latter condition is very rarely fulfilled since at least a mild aphasic disturbance is usually present. The existence of deficits specific for comprehension or naming of some categories of words but not of others have also been reported.
