Current Research
Our  current  research  is  focused  on  understanding  language  and  communication  difficulties  in  individuals  with neurological disorders. With several ultidisciplinary research groups, we are characterizing neuroplastic changes after language therapy in stroke patients, determining the optimal dose of anomia therapy in aphasia, investigating whether  electrical  simulation  is  a  beneficial  adjuvant  to  aphasia  therapy,  characterizing  the  nature  and  course  of language impairments in primary progressive aphasia (PPA), and developing clinical interventions and guidelines for clinicians who work with dementia patients.
