It is now widely expected that scientific evidence and theory should
be used to describe aphasia and aphasia therapy.

The Sciences of Aphasia: From Therapy to Theory provides
state-of-the-art review chapters on controversial research and
clinical issues in aphasia and aphasia therapy. Contributions from
distinguished scholars from all over the world (Europe, America,
Australia) cover the range of disciplines involved in aphasia,
including neurology of aphasia, cognitive and linguistic approaches to
aphasic therapy, psychosocial approaches, aphasia research
methodology, and efficacy of aphasia therapy. This book brings
together contributions of all these disciplines and makes a link
between theory and therapy from a scientific perspective.

Each chapter offers a current review with extensive references, thus
providing an invaluable resource for clinicians, students and
researchers involved in aphasia and aphasic therapy including doctors,
psychologists, linguists and speech and language therapists.

The papers in this book were presented at the first European Research
Conference on Aphasia.

"In order to know what the future may hold for best practice, I
