Following lesion to the right dorsolateral area, a transcortical motor aprosodia
is expected (Ross, 1981), whereas a left-sided dorsolateral lesion will produce a decline in verbal fluency on word generation tasks and so-called extrasylvian (transcortical) motor aphasia (Ardila, 2014; Berthier, 1999).
Se caracteriza por la casi imposibilidad para articular y el empleo de frases cortas (habla telegrafica), que son producidas con gran esfuerzo y aprosodia
, es decir, con la desaparicion absoluta de los elementos melodicos y ritmicos del lenguaje (Sanchez y Rodriguez, 1998, pag.
Abstract--Expressive aprosodia is an impaired ability to change one's voice to express common emotions such as joy, anger, and sadness.
Key words: aprosodia, cognitive-linguistic treatment, dysarthria, emotional prosody, expressive, imitative treatment, memory, receptive, rehabilitation, right-hemisphere damage, traumatic brain injury.
investigated three treatments for expressive aprosodia secondary to right-hemisphere stroke in a 62-year-old man: a prosody repetition strategy, a cognitive-linguistic self-cueing strategy, and a facial expression cross-cueing strategy .
More recently, we published two reports that detailed the visual and effect-size analyses of two treatments that were administered to four participants with primarily expressive aprosodia [5-6].
Therefore, 10 subjects with expressive aprosodia and the 4 subjects who participated in the earlier studies [5-6] were treated with the design described in Rosenbek et al.
Severity of dysarthria and of receptive and expressive aprosodia were also determined.
