Abstract

A comparison of the ability of aphasic and normal subjects to recognize three element auditory patterns of duration was made under the following conditions: monaural right, monaural left; split left leading and split right leading: dichotic. There were eight possible combinations of elements for each condition. In all conditions the normal group clearly outperformed the aphasic subjects with practically no overlap in their performances. Implications of using nonlinguistic stimuli for testing aphasic individuals, assessing progress, and training in pattern recognition is discussed.
