Aphasia

Neurology of language

QuestionAnswer
Auditory comprehension of language: Step 1 1. The ear converts acoustic energy into electrochemical energy and transmits it to the brainstem’s cochlear nuclear complex (CNC) via cranial nerve VIII.
Auditory comprehension of language: Step 2 2. The CNC sends this information to the thalamus.
Auditory comprehension of language: Step 3 3. The thalamus relays the information to the primary auditory cortex (PAC) for signal processing.
Auditory comprehension of language: Step 4 4. The PAC routes to Wernicke’s area for meaning attachment.
Auditory comprehension of language: Step 5 5. Wernicke’s area projects to Broca’s area for higher-level syntactical processing. (Even silent reading reading activates auditory cortex.)
Visual comprehension of language: Step 1 1. Visual information is projected to the thalamus’s lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN) via the optic tracts.
Visual comprehension of language: Step 2 2. The thalamus projects back to the occipital lobe’s visual areas (BA 17–19) for visual processing via the geniculocalcarine tract.
Visual comprehension of language: Step 3 3. The visual areas project a dorsal stream of vision (i.e., the “where”) and a ventral stream of vision (i.e., the “what”). When reading, the anterior, parietotemporal, and occipitotemporal reading systems activate.
Oral production of language: Step 1 1. Desire and thoughts to communicate originate in the prefrontal cortex and are sent to Broca’s area for language encoding and speech planning.
Oral production of language: Step 2 2. Broca’s area projects to the supplementary motor area (SMA; top of area 6), which activates speech plans.
Oral production of language: Step 3 3. SMA relays now active plans to the primary motor cortex.
Oral production of language: Step 4 4. Primary motor cortex sends plans to the speech muscles for execution.
Written expression of language: Step 1 1. Desire and thoughts originate in the prefrontal cortex, which is sent to Broca’s area for language encoding.
Written expression of language: Step 2 2. Language-encoded thoughts sent to premotor cortex (BA 6; Exner’s area) for handwriting motor planning.
Written expression of language: Step 3 3. Motor plans sent to the primary motor cortex.
Written expression of language: Step 4 4. Primary motor cortex sends writing motor plans to the dominant hand.
Written expression of language: Step 5 5. The left superior parietal lobe coordinates the visuouspatial elements of writing. (There are visuouspatial elements to writing – you can’t write it all in one space.)
Aphasia profile components Aud. Comp (corresponds with reading) - Verbal production (corresponds with writing) - Repetition - Naming (word finding/retrieval is poor for all types)

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.

To see how well you know the information, try the Quiz or Test activity.
