Research output: Contribution to journalMeeting abstractpeer-review


Traditional models of aphasia have emphasized the distinction between speech production and comprehension deficits. This distinction dates back to the 1800’s and remains foundational to the aphasia sub-typing framework used in clinical aphasiology today. However, many patients do not fit into the classic aphasia sub-types (Caplan, 2012; Kasselimis et al., 2017). The aggregation of data from people with aphasia in large, publicly-available databases, combined with the development of novel analytic techniques, provides a new opportunity for data-driven discovery of aphasia sub-types.
