Statement of the Problem: Aphasia refers to acquired neurological disorder caused due to lesion in the brain. It is caused due to stroke, trauma and tumour. The characteristics of aphasia are directly dependent on the size and site of lesion. This neuron-pathological evidence enables in understanding the brain-behaviour relationship. Methodology & Theoretical Orientation: The study would involve a retrospective design. 4 cases with different site of lesion would be considered and the characteristics of these cases in regard to comprehension, expression, repetition, naming, reading and writing. Conclusion & Significance: Through the case studies, the relationship between brain and behaviour would be analysed and thus the neuron-pathological evidence would serve as a tool in understanding how behaviours are controlled by brain and how impairment at the level of brain can cause language deficits.
