Abstract

Longitudinal dichotic scores were obtained for aphasic patients for whom extensive language and memory data were also available. Severity of language impairments was related to ear advantage, but this occurred because larger lesions yielded more severe language impairments and were more likely to involve Heschl's gyrus. Extent of language recovery was not related to changes in ear dominance. Relationships that occurred generally supported a functional-anatomical interpretation which stressed the importance of the integrity of the posterior superior temporal lobe to performance both on dichotic tests and on specific language or memory tests.
