Abstract

Phonological treatments to improve naming ability in aphasia focus on re-strengthening connections within the phonological system.  In this study, a participant with a phonologically-based impairment demonstrated a greater improvement in naming ability on words trained from high density neighborhoods. Stimulus parameters, such as neighborhood density, may play a critical role in the effectiveness of treatment protocols.
