Seven strongly right-handed patients developed aphasia following a right hemisphere vascular lesion documented by computerized tomography. One patient had a severe unilateral neglect, indication of its presence were evident in three and absent in three patients. The Token Test scores were significantly higher than in matched controls. Two patients had Broca aphasia, four had Wernicke aphasia and one had agraphia. The correlation between type of aphasia and locus of lesion was not much different from that normally found in standard left hemisphere brain demaged aphasics.
