Verbal Retrieval Problems in Brain Injury Cases
Victims of Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) sometimes have sluggish or poor verbal retrieval. Sometimes these injured people have trouble recalling words (particulary names of objects, places, persons) readily. Verbal retrieval proms sometimes surface as slow recall of the intended name with occassional paraphasis (e.g., “shoehorse” for “horseshoe”.
Verbal retrieval problems sometimes surface as slow recall of the desired name or misnamings, most commonly when they give a related response, for example “dice” for “dominos”.
Verbal retrieval problems are sometimes misunderstood and mistaken as some form of memory loss or learning disorder.
