Christina Reuterskiöld

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Twelve exclusively left brain damaged aphasic male patients (8 global, 3 Wernicke and 1 mixed transcortical) were administered an auditory single word discrimination task. The stimuli were 7 emotional action words, 7 nonemotional action words, 7 emotional object names and 7 nonemotional object names. Results showed significantly better performance on emotional words versus nonemotional words. Implications for assessment and treatment of aphasia are discussed.
