Stroke damage -leading to 'fluent welsh'[edit]

This is a reliable but not a specialist medical source and appears to be an interesting case history. Could somebody who knows the subject better please add it -if appropriate?

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 Falk talk 20:03, 28 December 2012 (UTC)


Comment[edit]

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)

Alexandraf51895 please review WP:MEDMOS#Sections. Also, if you are editing from a class, please see WP:ASSIGN and add a course assignment template to the talk page. SandyGeorgia (Talk) 15:56, 10 December 2013 (UTC)

"Aphasia can also cause........ cancer, epilepsy and Alzheimer's" WHAT![edit]

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. 70.171.44.124 (talk) 14:34, 21 January 2014 (UTC) BGRIFFIN

Dysphasia[edit]

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)
