Actually, this is not a WP:reliable source in the way Wikipedia defines it, especially not when it comes to articles with medical content. In WP:RSMED you can read more about the requirements for medical sources. With friendly regards, Lova Falktalk 20:03, 28 December 2012 (UTC)
Hi, this article has a lot of useful information, as well as some unnecessary information. For example mentioning that “language is complicated” is not necessary, rather you could say that a lot of different processes are involved in the production of language. Also I would recommend slightly reorganizing the page so that it flows better and is more cohesive. For example, I would put the causes of aphasia before the signs and symptoms and before the localization model. I would also recommend putting the “history” section in the introduction, rather than the history being its own small section. Alexandraf51895 (talk) 16:38, 26 November 2013 (UTC)
"Aphasia can also cause........ cancer, epilepsy and Alzheimer's" WHAT!
The following sentence needs to be either verified or corrected (The linked reference is not accessible if you are not connected to that university): . '...Brain damage linked to aphasia can also cause further brain diseases, including cancer, epilepsy and Alzheimer's disease....' . That sentence is highly suspect. I seriously doubt the brain damage linked to aphasia has been conclusively proven (or even strongly suspected) as causing cancer, epilepsy, and Alzheimer's. 188.8.131.52 (talk) 14:34, 21 January 2014 (UTC) BGRIFFIN
Dysphasia redirects here, and is mentioned in the second Infobox_disease instance, but it's not defined or explained in the lede, or even mentioned a single time in the prose - What's missing here? MrZaiustalk 12:09, 20 March 2014 (UTC)
Having experience with a child with dysphasia, I, too, am wondering why there is not a separate article on it. It seems like dysphasia - definition of dysphasia by Medical dictionary might be a good place to start. Though there seems to be some ambiguity of use of the term, particularly in the U.S., it is my understanding that aphasia is the absence of verbal communication ability whereas dysphasia is a partial loss or impairment of verbal communication ability. That may not be medically significant, but when it comes to working with an afflicted person, it makes all the difference in the world. Softtest123 (talk) 21:25, 8 November 2014 (UTC)
