Abstract

Associative learning techniques have been used successfully to teach brain-damaged subjects word pair lists. They have not been used systematically to improve naming of complex visual stimuli such as might be found in aphasia therapy. This study examined the effect of an associative leaming procedure, personalized cueing, on 10 aphasic (APH) and 10 non-brain-damaged (NBD) subjects'long-term naming of 40 realistic stimuli. The resuits showed that NBD subjects had significantly higher levels of naming accuracy than APH subjects; however, APH subjects were able to recall approximately 50% of the trained stimuii on the one week and 30-day posttraining probes. The clinical applications of personalized cueing will be discussed.
