Third International Conference on Spoken Language Processing (ICSLP 94)
Recovery mechanism of naming disorders was investigated. Two kinds of naming training methods, namely, one with Kanji writing, and the other with initial syllable phonemic cue and repetition, were administered to two aphasic patients. As a result, both the improvement rate and the stability of performance were better after the training with Kanji writing than the other method. It suggests that the improvement of the namng performance with the training of Kanji writing was activated by the information processes of writing Kanji and reading them aloud.
