RESEARCH PROJECTS

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 aphasiaalexia, 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.
