Document Summary

Refers to the fact that brain function does not happen bilaterally, different structures serve different purposes. Began in testing of wii brain injuries, each patient exhibited different speech impairments. 100% showed some form of aphasia (problems in language) 30% showed some recovery in varying degrees, it was found that most left/ambidextrous peopled recovered. The least amount of recovery was reported in right handed people. Very few language problems and rarely lead to language problems. It was concluded that because right hemisphere damage did not result in language problems and right handed people also did not show symptoms, language is attributed to left hemisphere functioning. In left handed people, language is bilateral, both hemispheres deal with language. If damage is done to the rh and you are right handed then no aphasia. But if damage is done to lh and you are right handed then aphasia.
