(The computer and the aphasic)

Both the computer and the aphasic have problems in handling natural language.

A cognitive approach of language-handling mechanisms is carried out, starting from the acknowledgment of these problems, on one hand (Artificial Intelligence concepts and applications -i.e., respectively “procedures” or “speech synthesis”- given its theoretical framework, and neuropsycholinguistic facts — its experimental data).

The relevance of computers in neuropsycholinguistic experiments is illustrated, on the other hand, with an example (a “lexical decision” task) where the presentation of stimuli and the analysis of subjects answers are both under the control of a micro-computer.

We derived such specific applications from this research as computer-aided learning and rehabilitation of written language.
