Abstract

Narrative discourse performance of two groups with penetrating head injuries, left- and right-hemisphere damaged, was examined and compared to that of a non-injured control group. Discourse deficits were then associated with lesion size and brain regions (Brodmann areas) included within lesion boundaries. Findings indicated that discourse impairments involving the organization of language and maintenance of a narrative theme result from large or relatively small lesions to either hemisphere. Although specific frontal and temporal regions within both hemispheres were most commonly implicated, parietal and limbic areas also appear to play a role in the production of narrative discourse.
