This chapter describes a research program that investigated the treatment of sentence production and comprehension deficits found with individuals who have Broca's aphasia. The program sought to investigate the efficacy of a treatment approach that is based on evidence from a variety of sources, including linguistic, psycholinguistic, and neurolinguistic investigations. The intent also is to use treatment and recovery data to reveal brain-language relations. The chapter describes the empirical origins of the program, the treatment approach, and its experimental products.

Keywords:   Broca's region, treatment, sentence production, comprehension deficits
