White-matter bottleneck in small vessel disease: A lesion-symptom mapping study of executive-language functions

Cerebral small vessel disease (CSVD), characterized by the presence of white matter lesions (WML), is among the main causes of vascular cognitive impairment. The most well-studied cognitive domains showing impairment in CSVD are executive functioning …

Aspects of competition in word production: Reply to Mahon and Navarrete
