Imageability, generalization, and neuroplasticity in aphasia rehabilitation

Abstract and concrete words are interesting subdivisions of the semantic system to study in both healthy and language-disordered populations. This talk will present research showing: a) that the relationship between abstract and concrete words can be manipulated in the treatment of word-finding deficits in aphasia to promote generalization to untrained items, and b) that abstract and concrete words can also be used to systematically examine changes in brain activation and functional connectivity related to direct training and generalization effects of treatment in aphasia
