What are the kinds of aphasia?

Aphasia is an impairment in the comprehension and/or production of language. The two main headings are fluent and non-fluent aphasia.

  • WERNICKE'S APHASIA
  • ANOMIC APHASIA
  • CONDUCTION APHASIA
  • UNUSUAL APHASIA SYNDROMES
  • MIXED AND GLOBAL APHASIA


This is an addition to the above-mentioned answer.
  • motor aphasia = caused by any damages to Broca's area
  • sensory aphasia:
    • auditory aphasia = caused by any damages to Wernicke's area
    • visual aphasia = caused by any damages to angular gyrus
  • Globla aphasia = caused by any damages or obstruction to "middle cerebral artery" which supplies the Broca's area, Wernicke's area and angular gyrus.
