Abstract

In Japan, a syndrome in which the semantic memory for words is impaired, in the presence of preserved phonological and syntactic aspects of language, is called Gogi (for the Japanese term meaning “word meaning”) aphasia. In this brief historical report, Gogi aphasia is described and compared with the corresponding disorder called semantic dementia.
