    Lesion studies of aphasia have long implicated the left posterior temporal lobe in the genesis of semantic errors. Wernicke’s aphasia and transcortical sensory aphasia are characterized by fluent speech, poor naming with a predominance of semantic errors and poor comprehension. They are distinguished by. Abstract — Epilepsy affects 1% of the general population and is highly prevalent among purpose of this phase I study was to investigate a presurgical linguistically distributed language treatment program that could potentially diminish effects of proper-name retrieval deficits following left anterior temporal lobe resection for intractable epilepsy.

    Brain abscess; Enterococcus faecalis. Brain abscess is a potentially fatal CNS infection. Here, we are reporting, a case of right temporal otogenic brain abscess caused by Enterococcus faecalis in a 12 year old male child. CT scan revealed a right temporal lobe abscess with 3mm midline shift. Overall, the results provide support for models in which the anterior temporal lobes are crucial for multimodal semantic processing and that these regions may be accessed without support from classic posterior comprehension regions. Keywords: Wernicke's aphasia, semantic processing, language comprehension, anterior temporal lobe, Wernicke's area.

    inferior frontal lobe, superior temporal lobe, and inferior parietal lobe (Knecht et al., ; Parker, ). When these language centers are disrupted through damage incurred by stroke or traumatic brain injury (TBI), aphasia is a common result and recovery is variable (Damasio, ). This form of aphasia typically results from damage to Broca’s area in the left frontal lobe of the brain (Myers, ). Broca established that the section of the brain called the inferior frontal gyrus is most responsible for speech conveyance, and Broca’s area lies within the broader region of the inferior frontal gyrus (Keller, Crow.

Receptive (sensory, fluent, or Wernicke) aphasia: Patients cannot comprehend words or recognize auditory, visual, or tactile symbols. It is caused by a disorder of the posterosuperior temporal gyrus of the language-dominant hemisphere (Wernicke area).

Often, alexia (loss of. It is interesting to note that there had been abscess formation in the temporal lobe without causing aphasia or any special localising sym- ptoms. The only symptom noted was the great pain on the left side, particularly over the forehead, but that, along with the rise of temperature, occurred a fortnight before opera- by: 1.

Conduction aphasia, also called associative aphasia, is a relatively rare form of acquired language disorder, it is characterized by intact auditory comprehension, fluent (yet paraphasic) speech production, but poor speech are fully capable of understanding what they are hearing, but fail to encode phonological information for lty: Neurology.

The present study suggests that the motor aphasia was associated with the ischemia in the left posterior frontal lobe. In the mild aphasia group, the values of rCBF and rCMR02 at the language area. There are two broad categories of aphasia: fluent and nonfluent, and there are several types within these groups.

Damage to the temporal lobe of the brain may result in Wernicke's aphasia (see figure), the most common type of fluent aphasia.

People with Wernicke's aphasia may speak in long, complete sentences that have no meaning, adding. Aphasia is an inability to comprehend or formulate language because of damage to specific brain regions.

The major causes are a cerebral vascular accident (), or head trauma, but aphasia can also be the result of brain tumors, brain infections, or neurodegenerative diseases such as r, the latter are far less common and so not as often mentioned when discussing ciation: /əˈfeɪʒə/, /əˈfeɪziə/ or /eɪˈfeɪziə/.

- A disorder that results from damage to the parts of the brain that contain language. Aphasia can cause problems with any or all of the following: speaking, listening, reading, and writing. - Damage to the left side of the brain causes aphasia for most right-handers and about half of left-handers.

Introduction. Wernicke’s aphasia is the classical aphasic syndrome associated with impaired language comprehension. Wernicke’s aphasia results from lesions to the left posterior temporoparietal cortex (Bogen and Bogen, ; Dronkers et al., ), thereby affecting core elements of the phonological and semantic systems (Robson et al., a, ) that interact during language Cited by: 1.

Neurorehabil Neural Repair. Mar;30(3) doi: / Epub Jul 6. Success of Anomia Treatment in Aphasia Is Associated With Preserved Architecture of Global and Left Temporal Lobe Structural by:   In three patients, this was the only conspicuous abnormality. Such isolated emergence of anomia in patients with atrophy confined to the anterior tip of the left temporal lobe has been reported previously and found to represent a prodromal stage of semantic PPA in some, but not all, cases (Czarnecki et al., ; Mesulam et al., ).Cited by: Transcortical sensory aphasia (TSA) is a kind of aphasia that involves damage to specific areas of the temporal lobe of the brain, resulting in symptoms such as poor auditory comprehension, relatively intact repetition, and fluent speech with semantic paraphasias present.

TSA is a fluent aphasia similar to Wernicke's aphasia (receptive aphasia), with the exception of a strong ability to repeat. Brain abscess has a high mortality with numerous severe sequelae, and temporal lobe abscess associated with expressive aphasia is rare presentation.

Here, we describe a unique case of temporal lobe abscess caused by S. intermedius in an immunocompetent adult presenting with expressive aphasia and no primary source of infection. Advanced imaging Cited by: 1. The largest series was that of Robe who reported transient aphasias after of (59%) left hemisphere resections to a variety of different brain regions.

In another large series, Falconer and Serafetinides 29 reported post-operative aphasias in 29 of 56 (52%) patients after surgery to the left temporal lobe.

The considerably higher Cited by: We report a year-old man with a left temporal glioblastoma who acutely developed a global aphasia, during which an EEG revealed continual repetitive sharp waves emanating from the left hemisphere.

and Wernicke’s aphasia. Front Left Side View Back Broca Wernicke. What types of aphasia are there. There are two broad categories of aphasia: fluent and nonfluent, and there are several types within these groups. Damage to the temporal lobe of the brain may result in Wernicke’s aphasia (see figure), the most common type of fluent aphasia.

The temporal lobe abscess can be caused by conditions like sinusitis, otitis media, dental infections, and mastoiditis if left untreated or partially treated. Additionally, in neurosurgical procedures like craniotomy, the external ventricular drain can get infected, leading to abscess by: 1.

The underyling lesion for this aphasia is often found in the left temporal lobe often including Wernicke’s area. This aphasia is characterized by fluent, non-grammatical speech and poor auditory comprehension.

Individuals with Wernicke’s aphasia often have a lack of awareness of their errors, which can lead to. BRAIN A JOURNAL OF NEUROLOGY The anterior temporal lobes support residual comprehension in Wernicke’s aphasia Holly Robson,1,2 Roland Zahn,1,3 James L.

The abscess was a chronic one or, as it is usually designated, [quot]encapsuled,[quot] and it presented features very different to those of the acute variety.

In acute abscess the purulent focus is surrounded by an area of oedematous and inflamed brain tissue in which the degree of inflammation gradually diminishes from the centre to the periphery.title = "Words and objects at the tip of the left temporal lobe in primary progressive aphasia", abstract = "Eleven of 69 prospectively enrolled primary progressive aphasics were selected for this study because of peak atrophy sites located predominantly or exclusively within the anterior left temporal by:   Part of Aphasia Awareness Month is bringing general information about aphasia to the public.

The general public often doesn’t know that there are many types of aphasia, each presenting differently and helped by different types of therapy or communication tips. We’ve created a succinct, shareable guide to several types of aphasia.
