Abstract:

The Handbook of Adult Language Disorders is the essential guide to the scientific and clinical tenets of aphasia study and treatment. It focuses on how language breaks down after focal brain damage, what patterns of impairment reveal about normal language, and how recovery can be optimally facilitated. It is unique in that it reviews studies from the major disciplines in which aphasia research is conducted-cognitive neuropsychology, linguistics, neurology, neuroimaging, and speech-language pathology-as they apply to each topic of language. For each language domain, there are chapters devoted t.
