Abstract

In the article the authors describe the history of concept of aphasia and its contemporary meaning. The different types of classical speech disorders are described: Broca’s and Wernicke’s aphasia, anomia, transcortical and central conductive aphasias. Non-classical speech disorders such as subcortical and cerebellar aphasias are described. The authors consider also topographic bases of central, verbal communication disturbances and the role of functional neuroimaging studies (SPECT, fMRI, PET) in their diagnosis.
