A group of eight right hemisphere brain damaged (RHBD) individuals' use of gesture during discourse was explored at two points post stroke. Three topic structured conversational and three procedural discourse samples were elicited at one and six months post stroke. Gestures were analysed in terms of communicative gesture use and use of physical movements. Results suggest the group's use of gesture altered little over time. Some indication of change in the use of head movements and the use of kinetographic gestures were suggested as aspects of gesture use following RHBD that would benefit from further investigation in relation to a non-brain damaged (NBD) control group.
