How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Article
Background There is an increasing amount of research that investigates the needs and wishes of people with aphasia and their relatives with regards to improving the accessibility of communication with healthcare professionals (HCP). An important way to improve this is by training HCP to use supportive conversation techniques and tools. Objectives...
Article
Full-text available
A variety of tDCS approaches has been used to investigate the potential of tDCS to improve language outcomes, or slow down the decay of language competences caused by Primary Progressive Aphasia (PPA). The employed stimulation protocols and study designs in PPA are generally speaking similar to those deployed in post-stroke aphasic populations. The...
Article
Background Communication between people with aphasia and their healthcare professionals (HCPs) can be greatly improved when HCPs are trained in using supportive conversation techniques and tools. Communication partner training (CPT) is an umbrella term that covers a range of interventions that train the conversation partners of people with aphasia....
Chapter
The modulation of cognitive functions by noninvasive stimulation of the human brain has gained increasing attention over the last few decades. Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) is an easy-to-use, painless, and affordable modulatory technique with no or minimal side effects. However, studies show no consistency in outcome measures due t...
Article
Research has shown that linguistic functions in the bilingual brain are subserved by similar neural circuits as in monolinguals, but with extra-activity associated with cognitive and attentional control. Although a role for the right cerebellum in multilingual language processing has recently been acknowledged, a potential role of the left cerebell...
Article
- Aim: To explore the differences between the oral and written description of a picture in individuals with chronic aphasia (IWA) and healthy controls. Descriptions were controllled for productivity, efficiency, grammatical organization, substitution behavior and discourse organization. - Method: 50 IWA and 50 healthy controls matched for age, gen...

Chapter
Traditional models of writing and spelling do not include the cerebellum as a writing-specific area in the written language network. In functional neuroimaging studies, cerebellar activation during writing was commonly ascribed to pure motor execution of the movements necessary to produce written language output, without any involvement of the cogn...
Article
Full-text available
Apraxic agraphia (AA) is a so-called peripheral writing disorder following disruption of the skilled movement plans of writing while the central processes that subserve spelling are intact. It has been observed in a variety of etiologically heterogeneous neurological disorders typically associated with lesions located in the language dominant parie...
Article
The aim of this article is to review the rationale on which modern aphasia test batteries are based. Since the mid-1950s, a starting point chosen because the discipline of speech (language) pathology was created during that period, a corpus of English aphasia tests was identified through searches of electronic databases. The tests were critically e...
Article
Full-text available
To compare the effectiveness of two intensive therapy methods: Constraint-Induced Aphasia Therapy (CIAT) and semantic therapy (BOX). Nine patients with chronic fluent aphasia participated in a therapy programme to establish behavioral treatment outcomes. Participants were randomly assigned to one of two groups (CIAT or BOX). Intensive therapy signi...
Article
Full-text available
Sinds het ontstaan van de ‘logopedie’ als apart vakgebied is er een ruim aanbod aan onderzoeksmateriaal beschik- baar voor personen met afasie (PMA). Moderne taaltests focussen niet enkel op anatomoklinische correlaties, maar gaan ook de functionele consequenties en psychosociale invloeden na van een taalstoornis op de persoon in kwestie en zijn na...
