Moreover, in determining the relationship between the locus of a lesion and a specific syndrome, etiology is also important. In addition, postacute aphasic patients can be more reliably classified than chronic patients because the clinical picture evolves and the patient partially recovers with 34 35 time. Finally, the aphasia batteries are not neutral, and patients can be classified differently if examined with different aphasia batteries. These factors, which must be taken into consideration in the study of antomo-clinical correlations, are briefly illustrated.

This allows for highly subjective criteria, and patients classified as conduction aphasics can be highly heterogeneous with respect to the defining characteristics of conduction aphasia. Resorting to the localization of the lesion to identify a more homogeneous group of patients is of no great help because there is no clear agreement about the locus of damage in conduction aphasia. It was originally considered a disconnection syndrome, with damage in the left arcuate fasciculus that runs from Wernicke's to Broca's area (Wernicke, 1874; Geschwind, 1965; Damasio and Damasio, 1980).

Accordingly, the MTDDA identifies five syndromes: simple aphasia, aphasia with visual involvement, aphasia with sensorimotor involvement, aphasia with generalized brain damage, and irreversible aphasic syndrome. It is composed of five sections evaluating auditory disturbances, visual and reading disturbances, speech and language disturbances, visuomotor and writing disturbances, and numerical and arithmetic disturbances. Each section comprises a sizable number of subtests, generally organized from the easiest to the most difficult, where the degree of difficulty is mainly phonological complexity and length.
