Overview

Alexander Rommovich Luria's research in the field of aphasia is internationally acclaimed, but to study his extensive published works can be daunting.

An Introduction to Luria's Aphasiology: Theory and Application highlights, organizes, and explains the key elements of Luria's approach to the assessment of aphasia and its remediation.
