Eye movements as probes of lexico-semantic processing in a patient with primary progressive aphasia



Eye movements as probes of lexico-semantic processing in a patient with primary progressive aphasia



Neurocase 22(1): 65-75



Eye movement trajectories during a verbally cued object search task were used as probes of lexico-semantic associations in an anomic patient with primary progressive aphasia. Visual search was normal on trials where the target object could be named but became lengthy and inefficient on trials where the object failed to be named. The abnormality was most profound if the noun denoting the object could not be recognized. Even trials where the name of the target object was recognized but not retrieved triggered abnormal eye movements, demonstrating that retrieval failures can have underlying associative components despite intact comprehension of the corresponding noun.
