Aphasia is a language disorder which may cause difficulty in expression or understanding. In other words, aphasia can be expressive, global or global, if it includes both. It can be mild, intermediate or severe. “It’s an alteration of our language ability. When you refer to that, we’re not just talking about the outside, the ability to speak a word. Otherwise, we also refer to the ability to understand it. Even the internal language, because a person thinks even with words. Aphasia is a disorder that has to do with problems with language to produce it, understand it and, also, use it internally,” explained to THE NATION Alejandro Andersson, neurologist director of the Institute of Neurology of Buenos Aires (INBA).
The INBA chief added: “In general, aphasia is called a language disorder where you have problems understanding or producing, emitting or pronouncing language. That’s why there are three types of aphasia: comprehension, expression and mixed, that is, when everything is compromised”.
Asked about the causes, another neurologist explained:They can be multiple. The most common is cerebrovascular disease when an area of the brain related to language is damaged. In all right-handed people it’s in the left frontotemporal hemisphere and in most left-handed people it’s also usually in the same area. There are also other causes such as a brain tumor or bleeding.
