Abstract

While we have some understanding of how individuals with post-stroke aphasia relearn language, why some patients respond to treatment while others do not remains a looming question in the field of aphasia rehabilitation (Best & Nickels, 2000; Kelly & Armstrong, 2009). While research has demonstrated that patients with aphasia are capable of new verbal learning (Kelly & Armstrong, 2009; Tuomiranta et al., 2011), we suggest that learning in general presents an underexplored avenue through which individual variability following treatments might be better understood and explained.
