Alexia in recent and late Broca's aphasia

E. Boccardi, M. G. Bruzzone, L. A. Vignolo

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The hypothesis was tested that alexia associated with Broca's aphasia may often be a residual receptive disorder of a broader picture of global aphasia. It was found that alexia does tend to be associated, as expected, to the long-standing Broca's aphasias more often than to the recent ones. However, the CT scan failed to disclose larger and more posterior lesions in Broca's alexic than in Broca's non-alexic patients.
