Most treatments for anomia involve highly explicit approaches, with clinicians providing feedback and clients analyzing their responses to work on making them more accurate. Typical language use, on the other hand, is supported largely by implicit, unconscious processes. This project is exploring a new approach to treating word retrieval impairments in aphasia designed to bypass much of the explicit processing that typically occurs in treatment, targeting and strengthening implicit processes important to supporting language function.
