Document Summary

A pure wernicke"s aphasiac (is rare), they can still hear what"s said to them and can repeat back what you say but they don"t really understand what they"re saying. I. e. someone talking in another language you can repeat what they say to a certain extent but you won"t know what they are saying unless they tell you or had previous knowledge. Pure w"s aphasia is very rare because a specific part of the brain needs to be damaged but usually, there"s a variety of areas affected by brain damage. Broca"s aphasia: thoughts are fluent, no cognitive damage but trouble getting words out, halted speech. Through therapy, other brain areas can be recruited to help with the brain areas that were damaged. Broca"s area = yellow part (in the frontal) near the region needed for motor area (move your lips to speak) allows you to go from a thought to a meaningful sentence.
