Anomic Aphasia


  • Anomia or impaired naming, however, is present in both AD presentations. Whether these presentations share anatomical and mechanistic processes of anomia has not been fully investigated.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We conducted a naming experiment in which target pictures were implicitly primed by briefly presented masked words. Results showed that the prior presentation of the written target name improved accuracy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Dosing parameters for each session were 8 presentations of 50 pictures, totaling 400 teaching episodes per session.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We now present follow-up clinical data, post-mortem histopathological findings, and results of molecular genetic analysis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The lesion induced a highly selective impairment of phonological reading without concomitant oral language deficits other than anomia for objects presented in the visual and tactile modalities.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • A wake electroencephalograph showed left temporal epileptiform abnormalities, following hyperpnea. On magnetic resonance imaging, quantitative analysis revealed a mildly decreased volume of the left hippocampus.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Color anomia has been found in cases of adults with alexia with and without agraphia, in patients with aphasia, in patients with a right hemianopsia, and in children with severe reading disabilities or dyslexia.[doi.org]
  • Conclusions: Our results suggest that CIN may effect a generalized improvement on the phonological output lexicon.[doi.org]
  • The majority of logopenic variant primary progressive aphasia (lv-PPA) cases harbour Alzheimer pathology, suggesting that lv-PPA constitutes an atypical presentation of Alzheimer's disease (AD).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • This rare and limited lesion suggested that the superior temporal gyrus plays an important role in connecting semantic knowledge and the output lexicon.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The almost complete maintenance of the treatment's effects in the patient 4 weeks after the end of the therapy also suggests improvements may be durable, at least in the short term, for some individuals with svPPA.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • CONCLUSION: The Spanish Computer-assisted Anomia Rehabilitation Program (CARP-2) for anomia is an active treatment for a range of people who have anomia as part of their aphasia profile.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • RESULTS: With the climate factors controlled for by entering them together with anomia in a SEM model as causes of absence, the results show a significant relationship between anomia and absence.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Patients with disconnection anomia may exhibit modality-specific anomia, where the anomia is limited to a specific sensory modality, such as hearing.[en.wikipedia.org]
  • Anomia or impaired naming, however, is present in both AD presentations. Whether these presentations share anatomical and mechanistic processes of anomia has not been fully investigated.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Word retrieval deficits in patients with SD have been attributed to the loss of conceptual knowledge, resulting in an impairment referred to as semantic anomia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • However, little is known about the specifics of this relationship and how it influences treatment outcome in chronic stroke.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • DISCUSSION: The results of this systematic review confirm that technology is an efficient approach in the management of post-stroke anomia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • MATERIAL AND METHODS: 30 adults (6F; 24M) with chronic, post-stroke aphasia were recruited to the study.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • This is the first study to employ multiple pre- and post-treatment fMRI sessions in the study of treatment-induced recovery from aphasia and has implications for future studies of brain plasticity in stroke.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Exclusion criteria were executive or apraxic dysfunctions that might interfere with the handling of keyboard or mouse, stereotypies or perseverations dominating the aphasic symptoms, or Parkinson’s syndrome requiring dopaminergic treatment.[doi.org]
  • The majority of patients with svPPA present with garrulous, excessive, and frequently disinhibited output that is characterized by stereotypic thematic perseverations and not stopping to listen.[doi.org]


  • All participants were administered a neuropsychological workup that included the Bedside Evaluation Screening Test, second edition (BEST-2) ( West et al., 1998 ).[doi.org]


  • Additionally, mean GFA in the left AF pre and post treatment positively correlated with maintenance of the phonologically based treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • (i.e., 3 treatment hr).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Word-retrieval treatment was administered 3 d/wk, 1 h/d for a total of 20 treatment hours (6-7 wk). Positive acquisition effects were evident in all eight participants (d effect size [ES] 5.40).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Abstract Most naming treatments in aphasia either assume a phonological or semantic emphasis or a combination thereof.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • RESULTS: Both participants with AD showed post-treatment improvements in naming, and one maintained the treatment effects at 6-week follow-up. The semantic category of the treatment items influenced post-treatment outcomes, but typicality did not.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]


  • Besides aphasia severity, there are probably few behavioral variables that can discriminate patients with a good prognosis as accurately.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Complications falling from the bed with an injury, attack against imaginary invaider with injury, agitation which complicates the medical care, transition to dementia, amnestic syndrome or organic personality disorder Prognosis Full recovery: usually[slideplayer.com]


  • Finally, Hoffmann and Chen (2013) studied the spectrum of aphasia, subtypes and etiology after subacute stroke.[redalyc.org]

  • The electrical stimulation seemed to enhance language training outcome in patients with chronic aphasia. [21] Epidemiology [ edit ] Many different populations can and do suffer from anomia.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Treatment may prevent further recurrence and the installation of more important and permanent autobiographical memory impairment. Our observation may suggest an isolated system not only for people's knowledge, but for people's naming.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Prevention Since stroke is a common cause of aphasia, follow these guidelines to help prevent stroke: Exercise regularly. Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables. Limit salt and fat in your diet.[winchesterhospital.org]
  • While the study is specific in its targeting of word-finding problems, a successful outcome would bode well for other studies aimed at prevention or reversal of declining cognitive functions in dementia.[clinicaltrials.gov]
  • Thus, in such a case, the patient's anomia arises as a consequence of a disconnect between his/her visual cortex and language cortices. [10] Patients with disconnection anomia may also exhibit callosal anomia, in which damage to the corpus callosum prevents[en.wikipedia.org]
