Abstract

This Phase 1 single-subject study explored the use of masked repetition priming to improve word retrieval for picture naming in anomia. Masked priming is one means of activating the implicit language processes that typically support rapid, accurate use of language, and that may be impaired in aphasia. This study used computer-based presentation of masked primes repeatedly paired with pictures to encourage re-establishment of implicit language networks. Results from one participant show positive training effects, suggesting that masked primes may be an effective way to directly address repair or rebuilding of language networks in anomia.
