Wernicke aphasia, also known as receptive, fluent, or sensory aphasia, is a type of language disorder caused by damage to the Wernicke's area of the brain, which affects language comprehension. Individuals with this type of aphasia have difficulty understanding language and producing meaningful speech, even though their hearing is intact. They may use made-up words and have difficulty with word retrieval and substitution. Treatment involves speech therapy to improve language comprehension and expression.
