Abstract

This study utilized fMRI to examine neurological activity associated with picture naming in twelve persons with chronic aphasia. A group fMRI analysis revealed common neurological activity associated the production of phonemic paraphasias in the posterior perilesional parietal and occipital areas. Semantic paraphasias recruited a wide-spread cortical network including, among others, the bilateral inferior temporal lobule as well as spared cortical areas in the left frontal lobe. These findings suggest that common cortical areas are modulated during the productions of naming errors in aphasic patients; even those with different types and severity of aphasia.
