Recovery in bilingual adults with aphasia (BAA) following treatment is a dynamic process that is accompanied by changes in the functional organization of language in the brain. Lesion data and functional imaging methods can improve our understanding of language deficit and recovery in BAA. This review article aims to inform clinicians about the neuroimaging methods employed to examine the neural correlates of language treatment in BAA and the evidence of the functional changes that occur within and across the language processing and the language control systems as a function of language treatment.
