Abstract

This session focuses on real-time measures of sentence comprehension and the role they can play in assessing aphasic language deficits and recovery. In the first part of the session, we’ll discuss the scope of sentence comprehension impairments in aphasia and review generalizations from recent work on linguistically- motivated treatment. In the second part, we’ll review psycholinguistic work on sentence comprehension in normals and present evidence from cross-modal lexical priming and ERPs regarding on- line comprehension in aphasic individuals. The third part will present evidence from auditory anomaly detection and eyetracking suggesting that both on-line processing and off-line comprehension improves following linguistically- motivated treatment.
