Agrammatism and paragrammatism: a cortical double dissociation revealed by lesion-symptom mapping

William Matchin, Alexandra Basilakos, Brielle Stark, Dirk-Bart den Ouden, Julius Fridriksson, Gregory Hickok,

Abstract The fundamental distinction of grammatical deficits in aphasia, agrammatism and paragrammatism, was made over a century ago. However, the extent to which the agrammatism/paragrammatism distinction exists independently of differences in speech fluency has not clearly been investigated. Despite much research on agrammatism, the lesion correlates of paragrammatism are essentially ... Read more >>

Cohesion in the discourse of people with post-stroke aphasia.

Minyue Zhang, Luyuan Geng, Yanning Yang, Hongwei Ding,

Aphasic discourse has been investigated through two major approaches: a micro-linguistic approach and a macro one, but the separate analysis of the micro and macro aspects of aphasic discourse has led to a noticeable gap between them. Cohesion analysis is one of the possible ways that can directly connect these ... Read more >>

Endothelial progenitor cells, potential biomarkers for diagnosis and prognosis of ischemic stroke: protocol for an observational case-control study.

Kamini Rakkar, Othman Othman, Nikola Sprigg, Philip Bath, Ulvi Bayraktutan,

Ischemic stroke is a devastating, life altering event which can severely reduce patient quality of life. Despite years of research there have been minimal therapeutic advances. Endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs), stem cells involved in both vasculogenesis and angiogenesis, may be a potential therapeutic target. After a stroke, EPCs migrate to ... Read more >>

Short-term modulation of the lesioned language network.

Gesa Hartwigsen, Anika Stockert, Louise Charpentier, Max Wawrzyniak, Julian Klingbeil, Katrin Wrede, Hellmuth Obrig, Dorothee Saur,

Language is sustained by large-scale networks in the human brain. Stroke often severely affects function and network dynamics. However, the adaptive potential of the brain to compensate for lesions is poorly understood. A key question is whether upregulation of the right hemisphere is adaptive for language recovery. Targeting the potential ... Read more >>
