    Who is the water Byron and so stayed with?!? LOL!

    Interesting, I may have a milder (struggling with words right now) form, of (want to say something intelligent) (still searching for appropriate way to phrase and words to use) (I know there’s a better word than “form”) version? of this disease

    this is what you guys sound like when you hit text to speach

    Read how this video of Byron inspired a character in a Liam Neeson movie and a Kathleen Turner play: https://www.reviewjournal.com/local/local-las-vegas/artists-draw-inspiration-from-summerlin-mans-rare-speech-disorder-2401773/

    How he understood thank you soo much sentence

  12. Elaine Lim on December 8, 2021 at 11:39 am

    Oh dear, I’m seeing the difference between Broca’s Aphasia and Wernick’s Aphasia. I feel like this is worse T.T
    little to no comprehension of what was asked or said

  13. Natalia Rynkar on December 8, 2021 at 11:43 am

    Can he communicate by sign language?

  14. John on December 8, 2021 at 11:43 am

    If anyone has seen the Liam Neeson film ‘Ice Road’ there is a scene in it where his brother has Aphasia and his lines are pretty much word for word from this video. He even says ‘ I hope the world lasts for you’

  15. Whifer on December 8, 2021 at 11:43 am

    This is funny how it dont make sense

  16. Disco on December 8, 2021 at 11:44 am

    Does he realize he isn’t speaking coherently? I was watching other Aphasia patient interviews, and they knew they were trying to speak but could not think of the appropriate word or structure sentences properly so they didn’t say anything. But he seems like he isn’t even aware of it? Very interesting.

  17. Zarish Haque on December 8, 2021 at 11:45 am

    I pray u may have everything you want💜

  18. Evan Oberster on December 8, 2021 at 11:45 am

    interesting

  19. RE NA on December 8, 2021 at 11:45 am

    Is he aware of whatever he’s saying? or does he think he have a normal speech?

  20. AngloAm on December 8, 2021 at 11:47 am

    What is going on inside his mind?

  21. morgan on December 8, 2021 at 11:48 am

    seems like his brain skips some steps when it tries to associate two phrases together ("how are you">"doing well">"looking well">"looking good">"looking pretty") but he still knows what he wants to communicate and still comes off as a really charming sociable person

  22. Nathan Asher on December 8, 2021 at 11:48 am

    Me when my wife catches me doing something I shouldn’t be

  23. qetoun on December 8, 2021 at 11:48 am

    He’s Joe Biden’s speech writer.

  24. MusicByJC on December 8, 2021 at 11:49 am

    I thought Trump was giving a speech.

  25. Øroiq on December 8, 2021 at 11:53 am

    He seems to understand all he says.

  26. Caleb Robbins on December 8, 2021 at 11:56 am

    Question, TactusTherapy:
    How on earth do you communicate with Byron?

  27. Steven Huckaby on December 8, 2021 at 11:56 am

    Is something wrong with me ? I cant stop laughing ! I know it is’nt supposed to be funny

  28. numaTruehome 100 on December 8, 2021 at 11:57 am

    Interesting, he knows what he wants to say, but because of the aphasia, he picks the closest thing he can to the word he wants and goes with that, because he can’t get the word he wants, Fascinating. Complete comprehension of what’s spoken to him, but his ability to select words for his sentence is impaired.

  29. anxietyprimev69 on December 8, 2021 at 11:57 am

    I think it’s pretty cool that you can still kinda figure out what he’s trying to say pretty easily despite the fact he’s essentially speaking Cleverbot.

  30. OnnZight69 on December 8, 2021 at 11:59 am

    Wtffffff the internet is weird I look up what aphasia is jus for research and this vid pops up and she says my name “byron” 😳🍀

  31. samsquanch1996 on December 8, 2021 at 12:01 pm

    This is very interesting and sad at the same time.

  32. Burhan Gharaibeh on December 8, 2021 at 12:03 pm

    A word of gratitude to Byron and Megan. My physiology students were very thrilled and touched. This video helps a lot.

  33. Carolus Augustus on December 8, 2021 at 12:03 pm

    Deep space 9 brought me here

  34. Pongant on December 8, 2021 at 12:06 pm

    He seems like a nice person.

  35. RachelMusician on December 8, 2021 at 12:07 pm

    I have speech processing issues and this is what everyone sounds like to me when they kick in.

  36. Rovix on December 8, 2021 at 12:08 pm

    "I’m happy, are you pretty?"

    I need this man’s pickup lines.

  37. Harry 501 on December 8, 2021 at 12:09 pm

    My dad is in the early stages, he had his stroke around 5-6 weeks ago. Luckily his movement improved dramatically so he was released from the hospital… tho his eyesight is very bad, lost sight on the right side. The first few days of him being home he was great and patient, but as you’d expect it’s a difficult time for him so the more anxious and frustrated he gets, the more tired he gets and his speech gets very bad. He has periods making MORE sense, gestures help, sentences formed a bit better, but it’s not great. He is very bad with names, the time, numbers (like he’ll say we need "2 million instead of 2 pounds" for milk, or the time is 3hundred thousand for 3 o clock). Sadly he’s not eating and staying in bed a lot the more he realizes we can’t understand him. He also repeats the exact same story on and on for hours.

  38. Cassandra Covalchyk on December 8, 2021 at 12:10 pm

    “I hope the world lasts for you.” Omg 🥺

  39. Mlee on December 8, 2021 at 12:11 pm

    The last two sentences I didnt see any aphasia.he spoke quite well

  40. Dead Head on December 8, 2021 at 12:12 pm

    This makes me really sad

  41. Sam Lowry on December 8, 2021 at 12:12 pm

    So it’s something like a permanent semantic satiation? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Semantic_satiation

  42. Elias Håkansson on December 8, 2021 at 12:12 pm

    That’s the most ominous send-off ever lmao, I hope the world lasts for you

  43. Oynayan Adam on December 8, 2021 at 12:13 pm

    Still a better speaker than trump

  44. scbret on December 8, 2021 at 12:14 pm

    So I’m watching The Ice Road on Netflix. The brother of Liam Neeson’s character has fluent aphasia, and I came here to see how accurate their portrayal was. In the film, a doctor greets the man and he says "I hope the world lasts for you." I’m guessing the writers watched this video while doing their research…

  45. Fatih Yildirim on December 8, 2021 at 12:16 pm

    What is the reason behind he can comprehend her last discourse and reply back with appropriate phrases? As you watched he couldn’t pick the words even slightly convenient in the previous part of the video.

  46. Dooality on December 8, 2021 at 12:17 pm

    So do these people know they make no sense?

  47. tsering choezom on December 8, 2021 at 12:17 pm

    Thank you Mr Peterson. I now know and understand what Wernicke’s Aphasia is.
    Love,

  48. MD Nowroz on December 8, 2021 at 12:18 pm

    It was a very helpful video
    Thanks for sharing

  49. Monipulator3216 on December 8, 2021 at 12:18 pm

    This reminds me of the Psycho Krieg in Borderlands 3 on the Fantastic Flustercluck DLC. His alter generally spoke in aphasia(albeit, very gory and vile words), and the sane Krieg would interpret. Never knew the actual word for it. I just called it word salad.

  50. Nick Rodriguez on December 8, 2021 at 12:20 pm

    "im happy, are you pretty? you look good" HAHAHA his beautiful loving nature seems to be hardwired. "i hope the world lasts for you" wow.
