General Overview

These movies show natural conversations with Ed, a 50 year-old right handed male, 6 years post-stroke with a history of a single left hemisphere CVA with residual moderate aphasia and mild right hemiparesis. His PICA percentile score was 62 and his WAB AQ was 46.6 with a WAB classification of conduction aphasia. The conversational partners included Ed’s wife of 28 years, as well as Mary Oelschlaeger and her graduate research assistant.
