Language impairment in primary progressive aphasia and other neurodegenerative diseases.
Last Updated: Apr 08, 2020

Primary progressive aphasia (PPA) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that disrupts the language capacity of an individual by selectively affecting the language network of brain. Although aphasic literature is replete with reports of brain damage responsible for various types ...

More than words: Social cognition across variants of primary progressive aphasia.
Last Updated: Dec 10, 2019

Although primary progressive aphasia (PPA) is clinically typified by linguistic impairments, emerging evidence highlights the presence of early deficits in social cognition. This review systematically describes the latter patterns, specifying their relation to the characteristic linguistic ...
