[An aphasic reader]

Abstract : Nonsemantic reading is the capacity to read without understanding by impairment of the lexical-semantic pathway. We report the case of a female steno secretary with nonsemantic reading capacity associated with severe aphasia caused by a left hemisphere ischemic stroke in Broca's area. Arguments in favor of a right hemisphere contribution to the reading ability are presented.
