Di�culty naming objects is one of the most common impairments in people with aphasia post-stroke, irrespective of aphasia classification (Goodglass & Wingfield, 1997). Thus, remediation of naming impairments is often a focus of treatment in the rehabilitation of language. Such treatments typically employ phonological or semantic approaches, or a combination of the two, in order to target the major cognitive components involved in word retrieval (Nickels,2002). Although individuals can show greater benefit from one approach over the other, the relationship between an individual’s locus of breakdown in word retrieval and response to a particular treatment approach remains unclear, and knowledge of the underlying neural mechanisms which may be responsible for successful treatment is scarce. The aim of this study was to examine brain activity associated with successful phonological and semantic based treatments for word retrieval using functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging fMRI).

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
