Abstract

Non-linguistic cognitive deficits are commonly associated with linguistic deficits in aphasia (Helm-Estabrooks, 2002; McNeil, Odell, & Tseng, 1991). Evidence has been reported for associated deficits in attention (Murray, 1999), working memory (WM) (Murray, Ramage, & Hooper, 2001; Wright & Shisler, 2005), speed of processing (Crerar, 2004), and executive functioning (Purdy, 2002). In this review, we examine methodological confounds in the studies of the role of WM in aphasia. The aim is to provide a framework for the development of alternative methods to reduce such confounds in future studies.
