He had a particular interest in the speed of neural impulses. There is a detailed account of the main processes involved in discourse comprehension in this paper. • McKoon, G., & Ratcliff, R. (1998). For example, Willmes and Poeck (1993) found that only 59% of patients with non-fluent aphasia had lesions or damage in Broca’s area, and only 35% of patients with lesions involving Broca’s area had non-fluent aphasia.
