Abstract

A single-subject design was used to assess the influence of repeated attempts at picture-naming, coupled with repeated exposure to hearing and reading target words, on the acquisition and maintenance of trained stimuli, and generalization to untrained stimuli. Individuals with chronic aphasia participated in a multi-week repetition priming protocol designed to investigate the affects of stimulus dosage and lexical variables on naming accuracy and latency. Results revealed positive repetition priming effects for trained items across both acquisition and maintenance phases; such positive effects were not observed for untrained stimuli (i.e., response generalization) or alternate exemplars (i.e., stimulus generalization).
