Other approaches and therapy for associated neuropathologies of speech and language related functions are also discussed. For more information, visit http://connection.LWW.com/go/chapey.
Описание: Here is the completely updated, third edition of the classic text on aphasia, covering key developments in treating language disruptions caused by stroke and other types of brain damage or trauma. From the latest neurobiological aspects, to social and group models of intervention and rehabilitation, this book is all-inclusive. The text begins with the primary types of aphasia and goes on to cover pathophysiology, nature and differentiating features, evaluation, and treatment principles. Key features include: -Neurobiological aspects of aphasia—one of the most pressing topics in rehabilitation science today-Significant advances in understanding the processes of the human frontal cerebral lobes -A new evidence-based section on naming and word retrieval problems, a pervasive problem in aphasia patients -Expanded chapters on the foundations of aphasia and how this chronic condition affects quality of life-A list of technological and information resources from the Internet and other sources for clinicians, families, and caregivers Blending traditional approaches to aphasia impairment with current World Health Organization models, including contributions by some of the leading experts in the field, this book is a must for speech-language pathologists, neuropsychologists, neurologists, audiologists, and students.
Описание: This thoroughly revised and updated Fifth Edition is the most comprehensive resource on aphasia and related neurogenic communication disorders from the most distinguished authorities of our time. This classic text has been used by graduate speech language pathology students for over 25 years, and continues to be the definitive resource across the speech sciences for aphasia. The book describes a wide range of intervention strategies including team treatment, group therapy, approaches for bilingual and culturally diverse clients, augmentative and alternative communication, and computer-assisted interventions. An important section addresses psychosocial/functional approaches to intervention. New to this edition are Activities for Discussion that encourage students to reflect on what they just read.
Описание: This volume combines in-depth reviews of models of spoken word production and cognitive neuropsychological disorders of spoken word production. The first section provides a detailed discussion of the development and structure of current models of language production using data form "normal" subjects. It is these models that form the basis of the study and therefore the text attempts to explain their processing mechanisms and assumptions clearly. The evidence used for the development of these models is described including experimental studies and observation of patterns in naturally occurring speech errors.; The second section focuses on studies of aphasic naming disorders and discusses these disorders in terms of the model described in the first section. The emphasis is on single case studies. These are reviewed in three chapters examining semantic errors and disorders, the range of symptoms attributed to disorders of lexical retriveal and deficits of phonological encoding. The text assumes that the reader has some familiarity with the linguistic and psychological terminology relevant to these areas and therefore is most suited to the graduate student or researcher/lecturer.
Описание: This volume focuses on the remediation of impairments of word production in aphasia. It is restricted to studies focusing on single word production and comprises papers by some of the researchers most active in this field worldwide. The scope of the papers is broad and includes many relatively under-researched areas and techniques. All the papers have in common a methodological rigour and the use of a single case or case-series approach. A range of treatment tasks are evaluated: 'phonological' tasks such as phonological cueing and word repetition, and judgements regarding the phonological form; 'orthographic' tasks such as orthographic cueing, word reading and writing to dictation; 'semantic' tasks such as semantic cueing; the use of gesture; computer presentation of tasks and even just repeated attempts at naming. In addition, the individuals treated using these techniques varied in the nature of their impairments and/or level of impairment that was targeted. The majority aimed to improve word retrieval generally, but one treatment was aimed specifically at verb retrieval, and another at improving accuracy of word production for an individual with a phonological encoding impairment. Each paper relates the outcome of treatment to theoretical accounts of impairment, and one explicitly uses the results of therapy to inform these theories. Taken together these papers provide a snapshot of the 'state of the art' in the rehabilitation of word production in aphasia.

Описание: This special issue of Aphasiology brings together papers from six countries in three continents on the ways in which computers are being used in the domain. Information technology is now well established as a means of delivering treatment to people with aphasia and this issue includes papers which describe the latest ways in which this is being carried out. Doesborgh et. al. report on Multicue, a way in which the capabilities of computers are used to support cueing approaches to the treatment of naming difficulties; and Mortley et. al. use the internet as a means of delivering innovative treatment approaches to the client at home. It is important that the high tech glamour of the technology does not obscure the need to critically evaluate the contribution of this mode of treatment. Two papers, Wallesch & Johanssen-Horbach, and Wertz & Katz, review and critique the outcomes and effectiveness of computer mediated therapy.In the 21st century computers are increasingly a part of everyday life and two papers address ways in which people with aphasia may benefit from this and engage in the emerging "information society", Van de Sandt-Koenderman looks at ways in which the technology can be used to support communication in day to day life by the provision of appropriate communication aids. Egan et. al. report on training people with aphasia to access the internet on their own account so that they may fully engage with this resource as active citizens.
Описание: Originally published 1895, this book contains the Syriac texts of the Book of IV Maccabees from the Apocrypha, as well as other Syriac documents on the same theme. It was compiled by R. L. Bensly, a highly respected biblical scholar and a member of the committee that translated the English Revised Version of the Bible in the late nineteenth century, and edited after his death by fellow scholar W. E. Barnes. Barnes provides a translation of those texts that do not exist in ancient Greek, in addition to an introduction on the various forms of the text and their relationship to earlier accounts of the same incident. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in biblical history or Syriac.

Описание: Sir Henry Head (1861–1940) was an English physician and neurologist who worked extensively on sensory systems. Originally published in 1926, this book forms part of a two-volume work by Head on the subject of aphasia. The work was written in an attempt to analyse and integrate the physical and psychological aspects of the condition, incorporating them both into a general theory regarding linguistic expression. Illustrative figures are included. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in aphasia and the history of medicine.

Описание: This book concerns the neural organization of language in the healthy brain and in persons with aphasia. The novel concept of neural multifunctionality explains how language is created in the healthy brain, resolves contradictions between classical aphasiology and contemporary understandings of brain-language relations, and serves as the neurobiological basis for development of new approaches to aphasia therapy.

Описание: Well versed in natural history, particularly geology and ornithology, Hugh Edwin Strickland (1811–53) became fascinated by the dodo and mankind's influence on its extinction. Seeking to investigate this flightless bird and other extinct species from islands in the Indian Ocean, he invited the comparative anatomist Alexander Gordon Melville (1819–1901) to help him separate myth from reality. Divided into two sections, this 1848 monograph begins with Strickland's evaluation of the evidence, including historical reports as well as paintings and sketches, many of which are reproduced. Melville then analyses the osteology of the dodo and Rodrigues solitaire, describing his findings from dissections of the few available specimens and making comparisons with similar species. A seminal work, it correctly concluded that the dodo was more closely related to pigeons than vultures, and the book also inspired others to take up the search for new fossil evidence.
