Working memory (WM) and attention deficits have been well documented in individuals with aphasia (IWA) (e.g. Caspari et al., 1998; Erickson et al., 1996; Tseng et al., 1993; Wright et al., 2003). Research into these cognitive domains has spurred a theoretical shift in how aphasia is conceptualized - from a purely linguistic disorder to a cognitive-information processing account. Language deficits experienced by IWA may result from WM impairments or from an inability to allocate cognitive effort to the tasks.
