What is it about?
Adults who experience impaired language because of neurological damage (aphasia) struggle to communicate in noisy and distracting environments. We show that aphasia severity impacts how people cope in these situations. When the language impairment is mild, people with aphasia tend to slow down in order to improve accuracy. This strategy, however, does not seem available when language is more severely impaired.
