The combined analysis of neuropsychologic, electroencephalographic, and neurologic data as well as of the results of computerized and emission-computerized tomography in patients with ischemic stroke during the neurorehabilitation period made it possible to ascertain the correlation between the lesions of subcortical pathways and speech disorders. Besides the intracortical, the cortico-subcortical connections of the left associative cortex were demonstrated. The semantic aphasia was shown to be always associated with the dynamic aphasia; and each of these forms could be either primary or secondary depending on the lesion localization (from the EEG and neurophysiologic data). The incidence of local polymorphous delta and theta waves in the EEG is an unfavorable predictive sign for patients after ischemic stroke.
