Changes of speech, language and communication in healthy and pathological aging

 

How do linguistic and communicative skills change when getting old? How do people with aphasia and those with dementia differ in these skills from healthy elderly people? How do neurodegenerative diseases affect speech and swallowing function? These questions are answered by analyzing language use and other communication means with varying theoretical insights and methodological tools.
