My research is directed toward understanding the neural substrates of spoken and written language, as well as the nature and treatment of acquired impairments of language in adults. This includes the development and evaluation of behavioral treatment approaches for aphasia, alexia, and agraphia. In our lab, we work with adults with acquired language impairment due to brain damage associated with stroke, head injury, and progressive disease. Neurologically healthy adults participate as control subjects.
