Hannah Damasio on conduction aphasia

“Conduction aphasia is associated with left perisylvian lesions involving the primary auditory cortex…, a portion of the surrounding association cortex…, and to a variable degree the insula and its subcortical white matter as well as the supramarginal gyrus (area 40). Not all of these regions need to be damaged in order to produce this type of aphasia. In some cases without involvement of auditory and insular regions, the compromise of area 40 is extensive…. In others, the supramarginal gyrus may be completely spared and the damage limited to insula and auditory cortices … or even to the insula alone….”  (1998: 47)
