Abstract

Evidence for verb retrieval treatment effects in aphasia is limited. In a within subject design, we compared effects of two verb retrieval treatments, semantic-phonologic training versus gesture training, in four individuals with verb retrieval impairments ranging from moderate to severe. Verb picture naming improved for trained verbs in three of four participants during semantic-phonologic training. Verb picture naming improved for trained verbs in only one of four participants during gesture training. No improvements were evident in untrained words during either training phase. Though verbs and gestures have closer neural correlates, there was greater advantage for semantic-phonologic training for verbs.
