Abstract

Linguistic Deficiencies in Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis

The aim of the present study is to investigate the linguistic
profile of patients with Primary Progressive Multiple
Sclerosis (PPMS) in relation to linguistic deficits associated
with specific brain areas. Ten adults with PPMS were tested
for the needs of the study and compared with healthy
participants. The Boston Aphasia Naming Test, namely the
tasks of listening comprehension, repetition, and reading
comprehension, were administered. Results showed that
the group of participants with PPMS had significantly lower
performance in the above-mentioned tasks of
comprehension compared to the control group. The findings
are discussed.
