Our research is directed toward:
- understanding how the brain supports spoken and written language abilities.
- understanding the nature of acquired language impairments in adults
- developing and testing behavioral treatments for aphasia, alexia, and agraphia.
We work with individuals who have acquired language impairment due to a variety of reasons, including stroke, head injury, and neurological disease resulting in progressive aphasia.
Our research is funded, in part, by the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders.
