•Wernicke's pt feels aphasia tests are annoying and does badly. [18]Elsner B, Kugler J, Pohl M, et al. Anosognosia, impaired attention, and impaired self-monitoring are discussed as they relate to Wernicke’s aphasia. 2008 Oct;51(5):1282-99. Ochfeld E, Newhart M, Molitoris J, et al. I started reading about aphasia. They can be distinguished by evaluation of language (tests of word and sentence comprehension, naming, repetition, spontaneous speech, reading, and writing), as well as tests of articulation (tests assessing the strength, coordination, rate, and range of movement of the muscles of speech articulation) and motor speech programming. These 3 disorders can coexist, but often occur separately. Memantine and constraint-induced aphasia therapy in chronic poststroke aphasia. Conduction aphasia is still another fluent aphasia syndrome.

Stroke. Wernicke's aphasia, also known as receptive aphasia, sensory aphasia or posterior aphasia, is a type of aphasia in which individuals have difficulty understanding written and spoken language. 2009 Aug 15;283(1-2):214-8. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19268976?tool=bestpractice.com.

Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A. Although fluent, the speech may lack in key substantive words (nouns, verbs, adjectives), and may contain incorrect words or even nonsense words. We see the role that Wernicke’s area plays in speech by looking at patients with Wernicke’s aphasia.

Non-fluent aphasias encompass the regions anterior to the central sulcus: Transcortical motor aphasia with difficulty in initiating and organising responses, but relatively preserved repetition, Mixed transcortical aphasia in which echolalia (repetition) is the only preserved language skill.

The Boston diagnostic aphasia examination. Brady MC, Kelly H, Godwin J, et al. An important variable that complicates these deficit associations is the remarkable reorganization of structure-function relationships that often occurs after brain lesions, such that undamaged parts of the brain assume the functions of the damaged part over time, resulting in recovery from even the most severe aphasias (usually only after appropriate language therapy). unless the person is able to practice emerging skills on their own, often with the aid of a computer. Aphasia: progress in the last quarter of a century. Therefore, there is often disagreement between 2 people in judging fluency of an aphasic individual. Cambridge, MA: MIT Press; 1994:755-88. The relationship between the symptoms and the vascular territory that is affected is not always consistent, but is more reliable acutely than chronically. Different aspects of language are in different parts of the left side of the brain. Cognitive and neural substrates of written language comprehension and production. Patients with fluent aphasia (melodious, effortless, well-articulated speech, which may have little content) tend to have posterior lesions in the left hemisphere, whereas patients with nonfluent aphasia (effortful, poorly-articulated speech, with more accurate content than speech sounds) tend to have anterior lesions in the brain. Kertesz A. unless the person is able to practice emerging skills on their own, often with the aid of a computer. Treatment should be individualized to address the person's residual deficits, communicative needs and priorities, and available resources. Therapy might be augmented with medications, such as bromocriptine or dextroamphetamine,[15]Berthier ML, Green C, Higueras C, et al. It is sometimes argued that intensive therapy (e.g., 5 days per week) is often more effective than less intensive therapy,[11]Bhogal SK, Teasell R, Speechley M. Intensity of aphasia therapy, impact on recovery.

Broca aphasia is characterized by nonfluent, poorly articulated, and agrammatic speech output (in both spontaneous speech and repetition) with relatively spared word comprehension. J Speech Lang Hear Res. It is typically characterized by errors in word retrieval or selection, including: Semantic paraphasias (substituting a semantically related word for a target word, e.g., calling a horse a cow), Phonemic paraphasias (substituting one or more sounds in the word, e.g., calling a horse a force or using a non-word such as porse), Neologisms (a series of sounds that do not comprise a word and are not similar to the target word). http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/14651858.CD009760.pub3/full, http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25929694?tool=bestpractice.com.

Dysarthria is an acquired disorder of speech production due to weakness, slowness, reduced range of movement, or impaired timing and coordination of the muscles of the jaw, lips, tongue, palate, vocal folds, and/or respiratory muscles (the speech articulators). Anomic aphasia is characterised by impaired naming and tissue damage in the angular gyrus or posterior middle/inferior temporal cortex. With Severe Wernicke’s Aphasia, his speech was approximately 40% understandable to untrained listeners due to neologisms (nonsense words) and paraphasias (mistakes that sound similar to the word). Lesions in dorsal stream disrupt word and sentence repetition, grammatical sentence production, and speech articulation. Wernicke's aphasia is characterised by fluent but meaningless speech output and repetition, with poor word and sentence comprehension. [9]Saur D, Kreher BW, Schnell S, et al.

[18]Elsner B, Kugler J, Pohl M, et al. Transcortical motor aphasia usually results from ischaemia involving the watershed area between the left MCA and left anterior cerebral artery territory. This is often tested by asking the patient to describe a complex picture depicting a number of activities. Individuals with Broca's aphasia often have difficulty understanding syntactically complex or semantically reversible sentences (e.g., "touch your nose after you touch your foot") but have little trouble understanding simple, semantically non-reversible sentences. 2010 Feb;41(2):325-30.
