According to the theory of dynamic and systemic organization of higher cortical functions (Luria, 2002), spatial impairments show themselves not only in perception (visual or tactile), but also in understanding of certain sentence types – the so-called ’logical-grammatical constructions‘. Testing these constructions is traditionally included in the neuropsychological diagnosis of semantic aphasia (Tsvetkova et al., 1981). The aim of this study was to design and standardize an enhanced diagnostic test, which would allow to more precisely detect the severity and the character of speech disorders in patients with semantic aphasia.
