Conduction aphasia , also called associative aphasia , is an uncommon form of difficulty in speaking aphasia. It is caused by damage to the parietal lobe of the brain. An acquired language disorder , it is characterised by intact auditory comprehension, coherent yet paraphasic speech production , but poor speech repetition. Affected people are fully capable of understanding what they are hearing, but fail to encode phonological information for production.

Conduction aphasia

The arcuate fasciculus has been the most frequently suggested site of such a disconnection, but the syndrome has been reported in cases in which the abnormality involved the dominant Wernicke's area. This challenges the arcuate fasciculus theory, and it has been suggested that a cortical lesion, not a disconnection, is the crucial factor. Three new cases in which the lesion does not lie in the arcuate fasciculus are reported, two in left-handed patients with left temporoparietal lesions and one in a righthanded patient with a right temporoparietal infarct, a "crossed" aphasia. While atypical, these cases offer evidence that disconnection of the circuit linking language comprehension to motor speech output, not damage to a specific cortical region, underlies the syndrome of conduction aphasia.
