The contribution of working memory to language comprehension: Differential effect of aphasia type

Aphasiology. 2015. Vol. 29. No. 6. P. 645-664.

There is converging evidence that there are cognitive nonlinguistic deficits in aphasia and that these cognitive nonlinguistic deficits tend to exacerbate the language impairment of persons with aphasia. Still much remains unknown about joint impact of various cognitive mechanisms or their differential influence on language processing depending on the type of aphasia. The goal of the present study was to investigate the simultaneous influence of different cognitive mechanisms (memory, attention, speed of processing) on auditory language comprehension in individuals with fluent and non-fluent aphasia.
