ABSTRACT
This article focuses on a study related to the disruption of facial affect processing in word deafness. Word deafness, also known as auditory agnosia for speech, or as auditory verbal agnosia, is a rare neurobehavioral syndrome characterized by an inability to understand spoken language in spite of intact hearing, speaking, reading, writing, and ability to identify non-speech sounds. Although these lesions are anatomically different, they represent an effective partial hemispheric disconnection. A case is discussed of a 45 year old man who had suffered a left posterior temporal lobe hemisphere CVA two years previously. MRl had demonstrated an acute lesion of the left temporal lobe and a chronic lesion of the right temporal lobe.

    We examined the neural activation to consonant-vowel transitions by cortical auditory evoked potentials (AEPs). The aim was to show whether cortical response patterns to speech stimuli contain components due to one of the temporal features, the voice-onset time (VOT). In seven normal-hearing...

    Topographic brain mapping was used to investigate the ability of young and elderly female listeners to attend to tones at one ear in the presence of speech competition at the opposite ear. An oddball stimulus presentation paradigm was used to record the N 1 , P 2 , and P 300 components of the...
