Abstract

In the study of aphasia, there is much diversity regarding definition of terms concerning the symptomatology of this disorder. This problem not only involves disturbances in language but also demonstrates non-language manifestations. Although literature on the psychological effects of brain damage is extensive, it is disconnected, resulting in many inadequate definitions and incompatible theories. It is the purpose of this thesis to attempt a collection of personality changes in aphasia as derived from the original texts of various articles and books related to the field of aphasia. Therefore, no generalizations or conclusions will be drawn from the material.
