Abstract

Two acute aphasic patients with severe anomia and phonological disorders were trained with a computer-assisted treatment during two one-week periods. A significant improvement was observed after each therapy period. A naming-related brain activity was measured by event related potentials (ERPs) before and after computer assisted each therapy period. We present details on behavioural changes and changes observed in temporal dynamics and cortical activation.
