|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Aphasia||Behavioral: Conditioned word repetition training||Not Applicable|
|Study Type :||Interventional (Clinical Trial)|
|Actual Enrollment :||12 participants|
|Intervention Model:||Single Group Assignment|
|Intervention Model Description:||12 patients suffering from pure anomia in the chronic stage of the disease underwent a word repetition training with a computerized telemedicine protocol. Each patient trained two word sets, one in a conditioned and the other in a non-conditioned training modality; a third non trained set served as control.|
|Masking:||None (Open Label)|
|Official Title:||Improving Word Repetition Training Using Classical Conditioning With a Computer Based Telemedicine Approach: Evidence From a Study on 12 Person With Chronic Aphasia.|
|Actual Study Start Date :||April 2014|
|Actual Primary Completion Date :||November 2017|
|Actual Study Completion Date :||November 2017|
Experimental: Anomic Patients
Pure Anomic Patients underwent to conditioned word repetition training or traditional one.
Behavioral: Conditioned word repetition training
In the classical conditioning training the onset of the visual stimulus preceded that of the auditory stimulus with a short onset asynchrony, and both stimuli co-terminated. By contrast, in the training without conditioning the auditory stimulus was administered first and the visual stimulus appeared short after the off-set of the auditory one.
- Training effect in the treated word set [ Time Frame: immediately before and immediately after the training protocol (duration of the training protocol: 6 weeks) ]Differences between accuracy pre and post in the treated word set
