Each member of the group should pick one type of aphasia (e.g., Wernicke’s aphasia, conduction aphasia, anomic aphasia, etc.) and describe the symptoms, underlying brain structures involved, and at least one common etiology. Your discussion should also include at least one peer-reviewed article on some type of research study involving the type of aphasia you have

Group Two:

This group will focus on memory and similar to group one, each member of the group should pick one type of memory impairment to discuss. Each student should pick a unique type. Describe the symptoms, the mechanisms in the brain that are involved, and most common etiologies. Your discussion should also include at least one original peer-reviewed research study involving the memory impairment you have chosen.
