Siguroardottir and Sighvatsson (2003, 2005, and 2006) worked with four people with Broca's aphasia whose onset of symptoms ranged from 1?
All had suffered a single cerebrovascular accident, and all had been originally diagnosed as having severe Broca's aphasia by the head speech-language pathologists (SLPs) at Iceland's University Hospital.
On the call, Northstar will provide updates for its EVEREST study in the treatment of hand/arm disability following stroke, its CHESTNUT study involving individuals with stroke-related Broca's aphasia
, and its study of cortical stimulation to treat severe tinnitus.
6/ 100), the subject displayed a mild Broca's aphasia
and relatively spared auditory comprehension in the context of nonfluent verbal output characterized by agrammatism, word retrieval failures (anomia in discourse and confrontation naming), and motor articulatory difficulty.
The evidence considered comes from studies of code switching, Broca's aphasia, and second-language acquisition.
It is well known that patients with Broca's aphasia typically produce speech that lacks functional elements.
The study's principal investigators found that investigational cortical stimulation in combination with intensive speech-language therapy may result in greater language improvement for chronic Broca's aphasia
than speech-language therapy alone.
